Globike is a sharing system designed to share your bike and your experiences with all the members of its online community. Thanks to its social network, Globike is designed to promote the friendship and the cultural exchange, together with the use of the bicycle as the best green transportation solution during a travel. Every bike sends its position (obtained through the GPS system) to the online Globike website. Users can access to the website everywhere through their Globike device, and ask for a bike to other members. With Globike, a boy from Barcelona that wants to visit Amsterdam cancontact a person that lives there, become his friend, and visit Amsterdam riding the person’s bike. At the same time, he can share images, videos and etc. about the travel with his community’s friends. The system is composed by an hardware and a software part. Hardware includes the Globike device and an electronic lock with a NFC chip inside. The device acts as a key, allowing a trusted member to unlock a booked bike. The lock is able to automatically recognize the devices that can unlock it. Read Less
