As an IoT integrator, we have created a connectivity framework for Brose that provides the necessary building blocks for realizing the Brose IoT vision. This includes, above all, the development of the required app framework and a corresponding cloud backend infrastructure.
Functionally, the app framework not only ensures the Bluetooth® connection to the eBike and the cloud, but also maps a sophisticated, secure user management. The cloud backend was implemented on the basis of the scalable infrastructure of Microsoft Azure. Connected to a cloud or apps, this results in a wide range of options for OEMs.
These include, for example, the data-driven enhancement of components and eBikes, a convenient readout and control of motor characteristics via app, or numerous usage-based service apps for dealers and end customers.
