World's first crowd-connected theft protection device
FahrradJäger, together with Pilotfish, has developed the world's first crowd-connected theft protection device called INSECT.
INSECT is attached to the user’s bicycle frame. If a thief tries to steal the bike, an immediate alert will be sent via the Insect app to all nearby crowd members and the owner. Furthermore, the INSECT device itself will react with a sound alarm. In case the bike is still stolen, despite the alarms, the user will receive location updates about where to find the bike through GPS on his smartphone.
Pilotfish helped the FahrradJäger team throughout the entire mechanical development process of INSECT. We were there for the initial product design, detailed mechanical design, engineering, tool making and testing as well as the final manufacturing and assembly. We even helped develop INSECT’s unique lock mechanism. Our experts sourced necessary components and helped FahrradJäger find the right production partner in Asia.
