Urban Mobility Pilot Project

Dubnica project photo

Location: Dubnica nad Váhom, Slovakia

In early November 2023, we marked a significant milestone by introducing our pioneering smart-hub, a modular and solar powered bicycle parking facility, in the city of Dubnica nad Váhom, Slovakia. This cutting-edge hub is composed of multiple modules, providing options for individual or shared bike parking. What sets it apart is its adaptability, allowing expansion through the addition of new modules to cater to the unique requirements of cyclists in any given area.

This innovative solution not only revolutionises bike parking but also underscores our commitment to creating sustainable and cyclist-friendly urban environments. By seamlessly integrating IoT technology and modular design, we've created a smart hub that addresses the evolving needs of cyclists, while promoting a greener and more efficient mode of transportation.

Cyclists now have a secure and convenient parking option, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly city. The modular design ensures scalability, making it a versatile solution adaptable to diverse urban settings.

For a glimpse into the secure parking facilities brought to life by this transformative project, explore the images here. This project stands as a testament to our dedication to innovation, sustainability, and the creation of smart, cyclist-friendly urban spaces, marking the beginning of a new era in urban mobility.

The project was financed and supported by EIT Urban Mobility through the RAPTOR program.

Location: Cluj-Napoca, Romania

One of our dearest projects took place in October 2022.

With the help of the Com'On Cluj-Napoca initiative, we converted an old garage from a communist-era neighborhood into a smart and secure bike parking.

The garage is powered by solar energy, and a local graffiti artist added a touch of street culture. The project shows how existing infrastructure can be repurposed to create a network of smart and secure bike parkings.
