FUKUSHIMA Wheel is the project for hipsters in smart cities.
The world is shifting to moe sustainable and car free society especially, in Europe.
FUKUSHIMA Wheel, smart bike for hipsters featuring environmental sensors to measure live city data such as temperature, humidity, CO, NOX, radiation and so on. Gyrostabilized LEDs on the wheels display location/time-based advertisements all over the city and make this program profitable. Our App encourages sharing, dynamic pricing, navigation and shop coupons. Our mission reinvents the business model of share bike, last one mile mobility, way of sustainability, environmental sensing by citizen science, prevention from bike theft and vandalism.
Last one mile mobility has lots of challenges (= business chances). The world trend is more diversity needed. Bicycle is invented around 200 years ago and manufactured 130 million a year, but there is no such big innovation so far. Our mission is "Reinvent the Wheel". We reinvent the business model of share bike program, last one mile of mobility, people's minds of sustainability, idea of environmental sensing by citizen science.
Most of share bike program is supported by local government using lots of tax or big corporate CSR such as CITIbike in NY by CITIbank. They are not profitable business because of bike theft, vandalism and now their revenue model is just for renting bike. That's all. Furthermore, most of share bike needs really good design of location of bike stands since if station is busy, bike rider can't return the bike and most of share bike providers move bikes by truck to empty stations.
The world is shifting to more sustainable and car free society especially, in Europe. London is one of most successful bike policy in town. Share bike is most agile and relatively cheap investment unlike classic infrastructure for fragile and shrinking city like Tokyo. Also city like Beijing has very serious air pollution. We can measure them by crowdsourcing and citizen science approach. We offers more diversity for last one mile mobility.
First of all, we are not as a competitor of other bike share providers. We offer bike providers more values and profit for their business by advertisement of wheel. We also offer navigation of cities, multilingual reservation system, dynamic pricing, optimization of bike location by gamification, coupons around bike riders.
We also have a corporate program for hotel and shops. You can customize your own advertisements on wheel! We support flash mob campaign for your business. Please ask us for the details!
We offer environmental sensing such as temperature, humidity, CO, NOX, radiation, air pollution (PM2.5 and so on) and city noise with very low cost by the power of citizen science. Local governments use the data as a open data to disclose their status. For the local tourism, we can also offer big data of tourists' dynamics and encourage local business by more sustainable transportation. We love to help your problems of the last one mile of mobility with green transportation. Please contact us what time
