What are the unlocking methods in the historic development of smart bike locks for sharing bicycle?

1. SMS unlock

People used text messages as unlocking signals for the earliest sharing bicycles.Usually it can be unlocked successfully within 10 seconds.The GSM module in the smart bike lock is similar to a mobile phone with a card inserted,and the server responds to unlocking command by sending text messages to the bicycle.

Although the way of SMS unlocking is slower,it has its advantages.It's relatively stable,and unlocking does not require GPRS/3G traffic,which saves power.Power saving is very important.If a vehicle has been waiting for somebody's riding,it will become another vehicle when its power is exhausted.Once there are much more cases,the cost of offline maintenance will be very high.

2. GPRS unlock

By the improvement,the unlocking method of sharing bicycles becomes directly unlocked by the server through GPRS and 3G traffic transmission intructions.The speed of unlocking has been greatly improved,and there is no need to worry about power issues,which improves the user experience.However,GPRS unlocking depends on the signal,and it is easy to fail to unlock in some areas with weak signals.

3. GPRS+Bluetooth unlocking

At present,the main leading unlocking method of sharing bicycles is using data and Bluetooth assisted for unlocking.The server only needs to use data to connect the user's mobile phone,and then the mobile phone's Bluetooth sends the unlocking command.At the same time,it solves the problems of slow unlocking time,instability,and power consumption.The power consumption of unlocking is greatly reduced,and there's no need to rely on the signal strength of the module in the lock,and surely the stability is greatly improved.
