TARA / Public bike racks


TARA is a smart bicycle rack for urban life. This project was motivated from the question, “Can people really trust the existing public bike racks?”From the research, we could find out that they don’t because of the lack of essencial functions that public bike racks should possess, which are Securiy, and Simplicity in using process.
So we designed a solution to make people use bicycle easier. By it's seesaw mechanism, It can embrace bicycle frame and wheel at the same time. User can lock them with TARA passing through the rounded hole. And if they want better security and services, TARA users can use application through QR Code on the rack.
