New video from Greenspider - a customisable turn-key solution for smart sharing
Greenspider produces customisable turn-key solutions for smart sharing of electric cars, bikes, and other types of vehicles. The technology is based on a small, low-consumption device named GREENSPIDER, embedded satellite localisation, user identification, and access to service and wireless data communication for connecting with SMASH ("smart sharing") - a platform that makes it easier to manage and access vehicle sharing services.
The company's new video explains the functionality of SMASH based on the example of an e-bike. The SMASH board is connected to the e-bike's central unit and the display. All of the bike's functions can be controlled by SMASH. In deactivated mode, the display is disabled and cannot be switched on manually. The electric motor can be activated only through the SMASH smartphone app, which authenticates users by means of near field communication or Bluetooth. A PIN ensures that only authenticated users can activate the system. The user can also switch the motor on and off with the SMASH applet. In this state, all of the features are active. The battery powers the bike's motor, and SMASH's GSM/GPS features remain in operation even in standby mode, which makes it possible to geo-locate the e-bike.
Greenspider GmbH - Technology for Clean Mobility
Greenspider develops technology solutions for sustainable mobility, in particular electromobility and vehicle-sharing schemes that meet the needs of citizens and municipalities in reducing urban traffic and CO2 emissions.
Greenspider's innovative technology consists of a miniaturized and low-consumption device with embedded satellite tracking, machine-to-machine communication, and near-field communication. This facilitates easy interaction between users and their vehicles and innovative services for electric vehicle sharing, such as mobile subscriptions and payment.
ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Greenspider was incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from May 2013 to April 2015. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That doesn't mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
