The requirement was for a dynamic website for a bike sharing platform where bikes could be zoned in stations spread around various cities in Switzerland. Moreover, the facility of refilling and recharging bikes for use with necessary status updates for availability.
Additionally, the website must ensure the tracking of bikes, bike management (internal), docking of bikes at various stations, and online booking and payment.
We designed and developed a fully functional website and a mobile application version using Laravel Core, a PHP framework, that makes the application more user-friendly and robust. It’s highly compatible with MySQL, increases runtime efficiency, and makes the database more secure. The web mobile application provides all the below features to the end users as well as to the admins, covering all the requirements.
- In every zone with multiple stations, in every station, the number of bikes available to book.
- Timely bike refills at every station.
- Timely bike battery recharge station by station.
