Solutions like electric autonomous cars, flying drones and taxis are very exciting, but still 5 to 10 years away for an everyday way of transportation. Meanwhile, people want better ways of commuting that don't hurt the environment and helps with congestion. We sincerely believe that IoT is one of the cornerstones to innovate the cycling industry and enable new ways to develop the cycling experience, meanwhile offering new business models to OEM’s.
Before diving into the value of IoT for the e-bike industry, let’s do a quick recap what has happened in between Eurobike 2018 and Eurobike 2019. It has been an eventful year, where we grew rapidly, launched new products that we are excited to display, started mass production of our sharing IoT telematics devices and doubled our team size to 50 people.

Now, as promised, let’s dive into the core of our business; bringing value for the e-bike vehicle and component manufacturers. In 2018 and 2019, COMODULE has helped the e-bike industry in 3 main ways: protecting end-user bikes with a smart GPS tracking, enhancing everyday commuting experience and enabling high-performance riders to adjust their e-bike preferences to their needs.
Protect your e-bike: in cooperation with Gazelle, 100% of stolen e-bikes were found with the help of COMODULE IoT technology. This solution has been a game-changer for the e-bike industry, since bike theft is very common and e-bikes usually cost more than regular bikes.
Creating a better commuting experience for the riders: in cooperation with Ampler, over 4300 riders have had the ability to update and navigate their bike via App. For OEM’s, this means access and overview of bike diagnostics. Send important software and firmware updates to the bikes. Also, send push notifications and messages to end-users.
High-performance riders can adjust the bike according to their personal preferences: in cooperation with Rotwild and BMZ, riders can now match the engine power to the terrain profile and personal riding style. Furthermore, navigate and have an enhanced overview of their bike condition. For OEM’s, the solution offers the capability to send firmware updates and receive valuable bike data for product development.
