IoT cloud solution for e-bike charging station administration and management

For the company Spelsberg, com2m is developing a platform that brings the customer’s most unusual product to date into the digital world: Bike Charging Stations (BCS) – charging without carrying your own charger. With the help of the cloud platform, statistics of the station can be viewed and statuses evaluated – and even controlled.

The highlights of the project

Management of e-bike charging stations

Customers, e.g. from the hotel and catering sectors, are increasingly offering their customers charging options for e-bikes. To make this convenient not only for the end customer, the cloud solution created offers central management incl. statistics, evaluations and options for restricting access.

Integration option for third-party systems

Via a provided API, the data of the charging stations, e.g. the availability of free charging points – can also be integrated into third-party systems, e.g. for navigation

Additional digital services

How can data from e-bike charging stations be used in a targeted manner for marketing and customer evaluations? We don’t want to give too much away yet, but here, too, a meaningful link is possible.
