WATTBIKE is a bicycle sharing system which utilises bus shelters to enhance micromobility in urban cities. It creates a system where bus shelters act as an integrated hub for commuters switching between different modes of transport. WATTBIKE integrates smart, active, efficient and environmentally-friendly travel into people’s daily routine while keeping bike litter off the streets.
WHY DO BICYCLE SHARING SYSTEMS FAIL?
WATTBIKE charging stations would be strategically placed in locations and orientations which enable maximum solar efficiency. The solar tracking roof tracks the sun as it moves on its path through the sky during the day, exposing your PV cells to an increased amount of sunlight and hence producing more electricity. This is because PV cells work best when they are directly facing the sun. Solar tracking can improve efficiency from 25%-35%.
