Velco designs and manufactures premium IoT products for electric bicycles, capable of collecting and receiving data but also of triggering actions remotely.
Collect data and trigger actions remotely
Invisible devices, easy to integrate
CAN connection and LTE-M technology
Mobitrax : connected compact box
Mobitrax enables to track a bike, to collect data and to control remotely electric bikes through our applications. Very compact and adaptive, it is easy to integrate on all types of electric bikes thanks to its 2 versions: S or XS.
- Track and trace: Accuracy between 1 to 10m
- Integrated alarm: Up to 102 dBA
- Data collection and business analysis
- Remote control of the bikes
- Web and mobile applications for end-users
LTE-M technology, the future of IoT for electric bikes
2G is coming to an end (announced stop in 2025) and 5G is being deployed. In terms of IoT, this transformation of cellular technologies is establishing the LTE-M protocol as the next standard for the IoT industry. With its low power consumption and long range, this communication protocol combines efficiency, responsiveness and economy. Thanks to its high speed connection, it allows to communicate even in motion, a large volume of data in real time between the different actors while preserving the battery autonomy. Its coverage similar to that of the mobile network allows international use even in hard-to-reach places such as parking lots. These advantages allow the bicycle industry to offer more innovative and efficient IoT products.
At Velco, we design and manufacture our own IoT. Assembled in France and Portugal, our premium IoTs are designed to be easily integrated and durable over time.
FIGHT AGAINST THE THEFT OF ELECTRIC BIKES
Velco’s IoT products include a comprehensive bike theft prevention feature. Notification of suspicious movement alerts the owner of the bike in real-time on his phone. If the user is in “surveillance” mode, the anti-theft device is automatically activated: our IoT have an audible alarm of up to 102 decibels that is triggered. The electric drive of the bike is immediately switched off, making it impossible for the thief to use it.
If, despite the device, the bike is stolen, the products incorporate a real-time geolocation system that tracks the bike’s position with an accuracy of between 1 and 10 metres. The user can then directly find his bike or communicate its position to the police so that they can intervene as soon as possible.
Data collection of electric bikes
Velco collects the position of the connected bike but also many key data to develop your business. Access data on user profiles (gender, age) or on bike usage (kilometres travelled, duration of use, CO2 saved vs. a car, health statistics such as calories burned…)
With the CAN connection, Velco IoT products also collect data on the bikes. For example, you can remotely know the percentage of battery remaining on a bike.
The data collection enables the development of services for end-users, more efficient after-sales service and marketing actions to build long-term customer loyalty. Data collection is carried out in compliance with RGPD and cybersecurity standards.
