BLOG ENTRY #10: Environment-friendly Bike

24 Mar

The Bike Share System is now being suggested to be an integral part of the city. The bicycles should function as censors and inform the system about certain behaviors so that the system can react due to the situation. In addition, the bicycles are equipped with GPS und W-Lan, so they are connected to each order and can inform the system about their position and status.

To increase the number of commuters traveling by bicycle from 37% to 50% by 2015, approximately 25.000 bicycles have to be integrated into the urban fabric, and these bikes will need more than 20.000 m2 of storage space. We see a high risk of overloading the squares, streets and stations of Copenhagen. In short, these brand new bikes are introduced in order to aim at calling the action of reducing pollution problems which occur in large cities of the world.

Bikes are stored in an interesting trough locking system that recharges the batteries in the bike and hopefully makes them attractive in the public spaces
