GIRA Case Study - First Shared Bike Service in Lisbon
Updated: Aug 26, 2022
Focus BC has developed for Emel a safety sensing system to provide answers about treatment and availability of thousands of data in real-time.
Emel is a municipal company that aims to manage Mobility and Parking in the city of Lisbon.
In 2017 the company launched a Bike sharing project called GIRA, a solution that includes a network of shared bikes, providing new mobility to the city of Lisbon.
This Lisbon’s public bicycle sharing system is a great way to travel around and explore the city.
With the business growing, Emel's main challenge is to manage all the bicycles and stations in real time and ensure a functional system. This management is dependent on loading and treatment of thousands of data per second, already having prior knowledge of the position and other characteristics of bicycles.
Visualization and monitoring bicycles in real-time;
Implementation of an alarm system connected with the state of the bicycles and stations allowing a faster action;
Understanding urban lifestyles - habits of movement in the city;
Planning new bike stations
