Monday Motorbikes builds state-of-the-art motorcycles that are connected to the cloud. Monday Motorbikes offers the latest and highest density cells on the market within standard battery configuration. Their flagship model, the M-1, allows the user to nimbly navigate the city without the need for registration and insurance, or even a license. By limiting power output through software, the M-1 falls under the federal electric bicycle regulations of the U.S.A and most states in their Economy mode.
Wind River is now currently developing technology for Monday Motorbikes, an electric, Cloud-connected motorbike that connects with smartphones. Their IoT platform brings the performance, security, real-time management, and analytical capabilities necessary for extracting, combining, and analyzing device information to support real-time decisions and systems controls. Wind River Helix helps to manage diverse devices and translate all kinds of data for travel across networks and into analytical cloud systems, where businesses and other organisations can gain insights for operational efficiencies and transformative improvements. Functions of the Cloud-connected motorbike includes end-to-edge connectivity, device manage and software / firmware-on-the-air. Motorbikes are connected at 28 separate data points for R&D, battery optimization, predictive maintenance and software/firmware updates. There are 2 operating nodes from the cloud, namely economy and sport modes, with a software defining the speed limits. To prevent theft, geofencing is created to shut down outside a geographical limit. IoT security in embedded devices: • Meets specs for IEC 61508 and IEC 62304 • “Designed-in” security into embedded devices w/ Wind River Operating systems • Design the concept of lifecycle security into devices - prevent unsecured connectivity • Wind River is working with Auto Industry to secure devices remotely (no need to bring back into the station to update) Data on battery’s performance is stored in the cloud so that users can see the bike’s battery life regardless of location. Specially designed batteries are structured such that cells can be replaced easily whenever it loses efficiency, hence saving the need of disposing the battery, which results in negative environmental impacts.
