Welcome to Iowa State University Senior Design Team MAY1509's Homepage

What is CyShare

The GSB BikeShare project, also known as CyShare, is an initiative to provide a bike-sharing service to Iowa State University and Iowa communities. The project requires considerable work from a collection of multi-disciplinary teams to create a working solution. Mechanical, electrical and software systems must be developed to provide a robust and expandable program. As there are already solutions on the market, the GSB BikeShare project is expected to provide a solution at or below the cost of alternative solutions. Mechanical teams will be developing bikes and a docking system while electrical and software teams provide the electronics and software back-end to control and manage the bikes and docks. An industrial design team is responsible for planning the logistics and policy behind the initiative. The project has an estimated time-line of roughly 2-4 years. For more information, please view the GSB Presentation linked to on the sidebar.
