A2B Bikeshare developed an innovative bike sharing solution that eliminated the need to use expensive bike racks containing on-board computers and cellular connectivity. A2B’s solution leveraged a custom Bluetooth-driven bike lock permanently attached to each bike. Consumers use a mobile application to reserve a specific bike, and then unlock their rented bike a secure Bluetooth connection.
I developed the iOS application from the ground up, based on specifications provided by the A2B hardware and web teams. This included on-device processing, integration with proprietary web APIs and integrating with A2B’s proprietary bike locking hardware via Bluetooth (BLE).
The product and platform were successfully deployed, and the company was later acquired by an established player int he bike sharing industry.
