CYCLE distributes and services e-bikes for courier services via subscription in 85 cities in Germany, Austria, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands. To safeguard the fleets against theft and always maintain an overview of the relevant e-bike data, the Berlin-based company is now working with IoT Venture GmbH’s smart device and associated fleet dashboard. The new 20FIFTY model, in particular, will be the first focus of attention for joint development.
The 20FIFTY, which was specially developed for delivery vehicles, promises a revolutionary solution for delivery in urban areas. This bike, which was exhibited only recently at this year’s EUROBIKE, the leading European trade fair for bicycles, will now be connected to the internet as standard. As a particular highlight, this model’s tracking solution is linked to the bike’s CAN bus and therefore enables more detailed, important real-time data to be read out. This will provide insight into servicing needs, for example.
“Our e-bikes are specially designed for bicycle couriers. By working with IoT Venture, we are now also paving the way for digital fleet handling,” says Nikodemus Seilern, Co-Founder of CYCLE.
