The major thrust for emission reduction has to come from transportation sector. As such a public transportation system, which reduces emissions per head, is always welcome. But when such a system envisages bicycles as the preferred means of transport then the advantages, environmental or otherwise, multiply. Ubicycle is a concept for “Public Bicycle Service System.” It builds around an idea of providing people with easy access to bikes by arranging for their parking. Dcontinuum’s modular bike racking station is a key component herein. It is as small as parking space required by one car and yet allows for racking of as many as 14 bikes. Users are provided with a key card – with a built-in smart chip – that holds the required info as well as the funds for access to bikes. RFID technology on the cards allows users to pick up a bike and ride it to their destination. And to take the whole eco friendliness that much further, bike stations will be fitted with solar panels that’ll keep the stations running and also supply the power required for running RFID gadgetry. A great concept that’s perfect for a cleaner future. More images of Ubicycle follow.
