Chengdu recently introduced measures to standardize the parking of shared bicycles through technical means .Starting from January 8, “Bluetooth road studs” were installed outside the exit of some Metro Stations . If a bicycle is not parked in the parking wire frame and sensed by the spike, it may not lock even if forced and the user wil be charged an extra fee.
It is understood that a total of about 1,300 spikes have been placed in Qiyi Square and Suning in Xindu District, which can roughly cover the flow of 2500 bicycles.
According to a staff at a shared bicycle company , the Bluetooth road stud uses GPS, Beidou navigation, and WiFi to locate the bicycle, “It can be accurate to a range of 1 meter.” If the bicycle is not parked in the marked area, “it will be impossible to lock it and the user will be deducted points. After the deduction, the user will no longer be able to use the bicycles.”
