• Electric bikes

    Motivated by the environmental, public health, ecological, and carbon-footprint issues associated with gasoline-powered automobiles, researchers, governments, and society as a whole have been engaged in a search for viable alternatives. Electric bicycles (e-bikes), which are propelled by a combination of pedaling and battery-powered electric motors, are a promising alternative to automobile transportation. Their primary advantages include lower purchase and operating costs compared to cars, ability to travel longer distances and with less physical effort compared to traditional bicycles, and zero emissions during operation.

    Given these benefits, e-bike adoption is accelerating globally, with over 200 million being used in China alone. In our work, we explore several aspects of e-bike use including usage, range prediction, and, more broadly, telemetry using IoT.
