Abstract

As new environmental challenges continue to rise, E-bikes have been gaining popularity due to their efficiency over cars in regard to fuel usage and especially when compared with their practicality over regular bikes when it comes to speed. A mobile application can help to get the most out of a transportation device such as an E-bike, which may, in turn, aid in lessening the traffic congestion problem in Cairo, the city in which this project is based. A smart bike app is meant to make life easier for those who own E-bikes as well as for those who need one temporarily for a ride. Most E-bike apps are made for personal usage; therefore, we’ve implemented a smart bike app that combines the features of both a bike sharing app and a personal bike app by creating an Android application that lets the user use either their own E-bike or a shared one, set a goal for the ride (destination or exercise), obtain their live location, and communicate with their personal E-bike.
