COMODULE long-term strategy is to become crucial technology supplier for
the light vehicle industry. We will not be just a gadget on the handlebars or
just an end-user tracker. Our goal is to support the industry from the ground
up and deliver value for everyone in the value chain.
We started market-entry from small- and medium-size bicycle companies
(Coboc, Ampler). At the moment we are working on system integration with
various other vehicle manufacturers. Second step is climbing higher in the
value chain and selling solution in cooperation with component suppliers.
Therefore we announced following partnerships in Taipei:
- BROSE Antriebstechnik
– BROSE is market leader in electric motors (such as steering motors) in
automotive industry. BROSE Antriebstechnik, subsidiary of BROSE mother company,
is offering mid-motors for electric bicycles. Partnership with BROSE motors results
in standardised integration of COMODULE solution into bicycles which are
powered by BROSE motors.
- Accelerated Systems – Accelerated Systems (ASi) is a Canadian
motor controller company providing technology for the LEV industry from e-bikes
and e-scooters to ATVs and lawnmowers. ASi has a global reach with operations
in North America, Europe and China. Together with COMODULE, ASi is introducing
connectivity to their complete product range.
Besides climbing higher in the value chain on the basis of partnerships
with component suppliers, COMODULE has extended its product portfolio. By
extending its product portfolio, our desire is to step further on allowing
plug-and-play integration of COMODULE ecosystem. Hence, COMODULE announced:
Connected Display which is the first
display in its product family. Display is designed for e-bikes. Unit is able
to gather data from communication interface and also connect with COMODULE
smartphone application via Bluetooth connection. For further enquiries, please
Bike-Sharing Boom & Mobike.
Everyone in the industry is talking about booming
bicycle sharing market: component manufacturers are considering more robust components
for the sharing market; low-end bicycle manufacturers are afraid that instead
of buying simple bike – people will use bicycle sharing schemes instead and
bicycle dealers are looking for GPS-trackers to turn bicycle shops into renting
We saw that bicycle sharing became hot topic not
because of the biggest bike-sharing schemes in Europe & US (London, New
York, Washington) but because of Chinese-based Mobike which has launched 450,000 bikes to
the streets of Shanghai (nearly half of which appeared in the past six months).
We are happy to announce that this summer COMODULE is launching a full features sharing and fleet management product. Our goal is to empower everyone to start their own free floating sharing ecosystem. For early access, please contact email@example.com.
Connectivity & Internet of Things Continues to Raise Interest
When wondering around at the trade show,
one could easily notice high interest around companies offering connectivity
solutions. Our booth was in constant overflow of people requesting for further
information. In addition to us there were also other companies who advertised
connected products: bicycle companies, full system providers, display
manufacturers, smart lock builders etc.
We had great
conversations with bike suppliers, OEMs, distributors, fleet operators and
other industries elaborating their own way to approach the market with IoT
solutions. We are happy to be in the
position of being forth runner of connectivity for light electric electric
