Project Description

This zip file contains the Source code and hardware design for the Smart-E Bikes Monitoring System. The Smart E-Bike Monitoring System (SEMS) is a platform for the real- time acquisition of usage data from electrically-assisted bikes (also called pedelecs or e-bikes). It is autonomous (runs off the bike battery), replicable (open-source and open hardware), scalable (different fleet sizes) and modular (sensors can be added) so it can be used for further research and development. The system monitors location (GPS), rider control data (level of assistance) and other custom sensor input in real time. The SEMS data can feed an online interface for data analysis, for riders to view their own data and for sharing on social media. The basic system can be replicated by other researchers and can be extended with modules to explore various issues in e-bike research. The source code and hardware design are publicly available, under the GPL license, for non-commercial use. SEMS was implemented on 30 bikes and collected data during ten months of real-word trials in the UK. The SEMS turns singular e-bikes into a networked fleet.
