New system alerts users if someone touches or steals their bike


A new system that alerts you if your bike gets knocked over while it is parked and tracks it if someone loads it into the back of a van has been developed.

 

The Scorpio Ride 'Core' system uses an app to keep track of a module installed inside the bike. The box plugs into the battery and relays everything from location to tire pressure to the user's phone, tablet or computer.

 

The system can also track performance, measuring the distance and time of the ride, along with the top speed achieved.

 

For security, the system has an internal 3-axis accelerometer that can be set to notice when someone besides you is bothering the bike, according to 'wired.com'.

 

If the bike is stolen, users can trigger the app's Emergency Mode, which produces a pin code that gives police temporary access to the live location feed and can be tracked to between 10 and 20 feet.

 

If a thief disconnects the bike's battery, the unit has an internal backup power source to keep sending information until the bike is recovered.
