The most important topics for investors are:
According to the law, it is necessary to start with at least 250 scooters.
The minimum initial investment amount is 1.5-2 million TL.
You must have a team of engineers.
You also need to have field teams.
The most important part is the integration of software and IOT to each other and to the scooter.
You will either write the software with your own team or use it for rent or purchase it with the source code.
As a rental option, they ask for up to $50,000 per year. And they also get a share of the sale. Source code is not provided.
There is no company other than me that gives the source code and all the know how. I only charge a one-time fee.
The most important factor is that you own the software and know-how for your investment.
Details about My Escooter Software are as follows:
** Working on pedestrian and pavement detection feature.
You can also purchase the entire software and consultancy and support services for a certain period of time with this project.
Software and integrations + IOT + Smart Lock combinations support Xiaomi m365, Xiaomi Mi Pro 2, Segway Max, ES, Ninebot, Fitrider model escooters. Although the integration and software is done on Xiaomi m365, the same IOT and softwares support all mentioned models 100%.
I have received a lot of emails and messages about the shared electric scooter software and the integration problems that those who start this business are facing with integration problems they never expected. The software system is very complicated and naturally expensive to people. It is necessary to design according to the lock.. It is also necessary to redesign the hardware and software of the whole system and according to which working logic it will work.. Or it is necessary to make it more flexible by considering these requirements..
You can watch the real-time mobile software with the whole system below.
Some screens of this mobile software are as follows:
The design and SDLC phases of the software were in the form of a GENERIC and R&D project. All integrations and studies are documented with pictures.
The components of the system were also made as follows.
Supports working in a database on both LINUX and Windows (MySQL or MSSQL),
An API (Microservices architecture infrastructure) that will run on LINUX or Windows Server inside the software (.NET Core Web API),
A Broker (MQTT Server and Client) or Socket software (.NET Core) that will run in the background,
ADMIN and Administration Pages + GEOFENCE support (IOT + SW) (.NET Core),
With Google Flutter-Dart software language, IOS and Android Mobile software will talk to Motor and Battery via BLE or directly over IOT. (I cracked and wrote the cryptographic BLE software for Segway+Ninebot+Xiaomi that will talk over BLE. Here I worked directly over IOT this time.)
Mobile software functionally supports Geofence and warning (preventing out-of-area use), marking of allowed areas on the map, distance measuring, battery status, qrcode scanning, smart unlocking (via BLE or direct IOT), calling, starting to drive, taking pictures and driving. It supports many features such as termination, locking or unlocking the scooter, registration, credit card, driving tracking records, continuous updating of escooter information, etc.
Login entries of background admin pages and all CRUD (Register, read, update and delete) functions are ready.
API (communicate to host from mobile software) is completely ready.
The conceptual and detailed design of the entire system made in Microsoft VISIO, the hardware integrations and software integrations made according to this design were created in the form of Word documents. Apart from these, a large number of draft documents were also created during the studies.
As IOT, 2 different versions of the same product were used. The battery and main brain part of the Xiaomi M365 scooter, which I have an IOT card, has been opened and soldered to this brain and battery with its cables and is not visible from the outside. In addition, I have protected the IOT card from interference and contact with aluminum foil + duct tape on it. In addition, an extra powerful 900 mah Lipo battery was supplied with 3 wires and the necessary connections were changed and connected to the IOT. With this IOT card, all hardware integrations and all software integrations have been carried out by testing all protocols. It is software supported to work for 2 models within the smart lock system.
The other IOT card was taken to be tested on more powerful and professional scooter models such as Segway MAX+ES+Ninebot+Fitrider. These scooter models, which are sold especially as retail, need special cables since they are not shared model production. Although the PINOUT of these cables is complicated according to the IOT card and scooter model, it has been definitely removed and I have it in my hand. However, this model has not been tested since scooters are not supplied. All these complex hardware integrations are documented with pictures.
Let’s repeat: Software and integrations + IOT + Smart Lock combinations support Xiaomi m365, Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 , Segway Max ,ES , Ninebot , Fitrider model escooters. Although the integration and software is done on Xiaomi m365, the same IOT and softwares support all mentioned models 100%.
All software has been tested and run on both LINUX and Microsoft Windows.
You can also purchase the entire software and/or consultancy and support services for a certain period of time with this project.
If you want to outsource the entire service, then it will be difficult for you to get an investment from those companies . For you to have an idea, I am putting the sample offers of two companies, one from China and the other from Turkey, as a picture, so that you can compare. They want the software usage fee for every year. I get the fee only once, and the software and know-how are yours for life. They also ask an average of 10% of the earnings in addition to those on offer.
