A newcomer to smart technologies, the smart e-bike first lunched in late 2014, named DuBike. Developed by Baidu, the search engine giant in direct competition with Google in China. Assisted by the design department of Tsinghua University.
The company has just announced the release of its next product. DuBike, an electric bike working through the electrical regeneration technology, in other words without a motor.
The bike generates its own energy, through a platform that converts the kinetic energy of pedaling power, thus operating independently. The energy produced feeds the bike, allowing an electric pedaling assistance, but can also be used to recharge a smartphone for example. In addition, and as many connection devices do, the Dubike offers many services for data analysis. Firstly on our physical activity and then on our sport habits.
We note in particular, the monitoring of heart rate and calculating the pedaling rhythm. Also the possibility of developing mapped routes, and knowing the position of the bike in real time.
The application will, among other things define cycle routes based on user habits, but also adapt sport programs. The sum of these data is then synchronized, and is searchable via a smartphone app or dedicated tablet.
