What have been the technological needs of the project?

Izertis has developed the technology that allows to rent, unlock, geolocate and manage all the rental service, as well as exploit the use data to improve the service.

It has also been responsible for the development of the APP from which the user rents, blocks and unlocks the bicycles together with the technological integration with the IoT devices that have installed them, in addition to the portal from which to consult all the functionalities: http://www.tucycle.com

How does it work?

Through the App, the user only has to approach one of the dozens of stations (Tudock) that are distributed throughout Gijón. The bikes are geolocated, so we just have to get close to the nearest Tudock station. The App will tell us the number of bikes available, the nearest station, the credit we have and the options to recharge the electronic purse.

Once at the station and just scanning the QR code integrated in the closure of the bike, it will unlock allowing you to start enjoying the rental service. Bicycles have to be collected and deposited once the rental is complete at the stations enabled. During the rent, the user can park the bicycle in any place to make a stop, blocking the closing that they have incorporated in the rear wheel, avoiding the subtraction of these.
