Overview

We propose a mobile app that uses sensors on University of Arizona bike racks to relay traffic and security information to students. With this product, users can anticipate whether certain bike racks will be full. This allows the user to save time and avoid problems with acquiring a bike parking space. By checking this mobile app users could also determine roadway congestion throughout campus and potentially select a faster alternative route to assist with punctuality. Furthermore, the sensors would detect the exit and entry of bikes on each rack and an alert system would forward these notifications to users alarming them of their bike’s removal by a thief with an associated time stamp. Overall, this app would provide many benefits to students who air to get to class on time and are concerned about the high amount of bike theft on campus.
