The e-bike business of the Stuttgart-based company is looking to address the specific needs of all user groups.


Leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry MAHLE SmartBike Systems has announced that it has added new apps to its connective drive concept. 

The e-bike business of the automotive supplier based in Stuttgart is looking to address the specific needs of all user groups. Therefore, there will be tailor-made apps for each of these groups: “MySmartBike” for bikers, “SmartBike Lab” for dealerships, and “Production” for e-bike manufacturers. 

The customer and dealership applications will be available from the App Store and Google Play Store for iOS and Android, while manufacturers can get the app from their sales contact. 

According to the company, all three apps can also be used on a desktop PC, where the user interface appears as a dashboard and includes additional functions.

The MySmartBike app for bikers raises the interaction between bike and rider to a new level. It provides charge status monitoring and other information about the bike in real-time. It can also record training cycles and routes and lets the rider optimise training programmes by recording, displaying, and analysing various parameters, including gradient, heart rate, and measured times. For example, the boost level from the motor can be regulated based on the biker’s heart rate. If the heart rate exceeds the recommended range, then the motor output is increased.

The SmartBike Lab app lets dealerships optimise their after-sales services, with fast and customer-oriented diagnostics, setup, and training of new components. The Production app helps manufacturers trace the smart bike path from shipment to the dealership to the initial ride by the end-user. All three apps offer advanced functions via the respective web dashboard. Information such as health data, the topography of routes travelled, or trip information can be retrieved and connected to third-party services such as STRAVA, a social network for tracking athletic activities.

Dr Armin Messerer, Vice President Mechatronics, MAHLE - responsible for the e-bike business segment, said, “Connectivity is one of the key strengths of our drive concept for e-bikes. The new apps will allow us to make many digital services more customisable and user-friendly and to expand them to meet future needs.”
