Hello Chuxing, the Chinese bicycle-sharing platform once known as Hellobike, announced that all of its bikes have been connected to the BeiDou positioning system, following the successful launch of the last satellite of the global BeiDou-3 system today.
Hello Chuxing's co-founder and CEO, Li Kaizhu said that this is the first large-scale application of the BeiDou positioning service in the travel sharing field.
Hello Chuxing uses technology to optimize the parking order of vehicles on municipal roads by guiding users to standardize parking through full access to the BeiDou's high-precision navigation and positioning system, he said.
At the end of March, Hello Chuxing launched its new bike-sharing model "Yunxing" and its new bike-sharing model "Yunqi", both of which are connected to the BeiDou positioning service.
Subsequently, Hello Chuxing carried out a remote firmware upgrade for all bikes on the road, and all Hello Chuxing bikes are now equipped with BeiDou.
