The Smart Lock and Dock will not only reduce CO2 emissions but will also help to release street space currently occupied with different types of parking stands and bike rental docks.
The system can also be used as an ordinary bike stand without subscribing, by locking your bike with your own lock. Additionally, cities can also use the intelligent bike stand to provide bike-sharing services to its citizens. The company also helps to reduce the amount of bike theft with the Smart Lock and Dock.
