IoT-enabled Bike Sharing

Posted by on December 01, 2015 · 1 min read

For our CS244r final project we built a smart bike lock and an iPhone app that allowed users to rent out their own bike, or to rent other people’s bikes. Our server generated Time-expiring One Time Passwords (TOTP) that were passed to the phone, and then to the lock over BLE if a user has permission to rent the bike. We focused on security / encryption to ensure that malicious users could not unlock a bike when they were not supposed to through replay attacks.
