IBEX was commissioned to develop the hardware and embedded software for a new street-based bicycle rental station. 

With power typically provided from a rechargeable battery pack, for low-cost street installation, all of the system electronics were designed for minimal power consumption and ultra-low power sleep states. Operating times of many weeks were achieved between battery changes.
