Abstract
This report covers the process of a project that resulted
in a future concept for an autonomous bike-sharing
system. It started with a desire to do transportation
design and to explore the future of public transit
and the role of the bicycle in it. The research phase
started with trying to form an understanding of the
current public transportation situation for cyclists
and also looking into future trends, both socially
and technologically. That research phase led the
next research phase to focus on bike-sharing and
its benefits and problems. The final research phase
concluded in a system design phase that experimented
with modes of operation and ways of interaction with
a system of this size. From the system design a set of

This report covers the process of a project that resulted
in a future concept for an autonomous bike-sharing
system. It started with a desire to do transportation
design and to explore the future of public transit
and the role of the bicycle in it. The research phase
started with trying to form an understanding of the
current public transportation situation for cyclists
and also looking into future trends, both socially

next research phase to focus on bike-sharing and
its benefits and problems. The final research phase
concluded in a system design phase that experimented
with modes of operation and ways of interaction with
a system of this size. From the system design a set of
design criteria and focus areas was formed. The main
focus of the project was to design a self driving bikesharing
station and a bicycle for it. My approach to this
was to start with the context and how bikes should be
accessed to then design them based on that. The final
result is an future bike-sharing system that is designed
as part of a multi-modal urban mobility network. It
leverages autonomous vehicle technology to create
a more flexible, efficient and accessible system. It
consists of a self-driving station that enables instant
rebalancing and scaling and a bicycle that is designed
with simplicity and durability in mind. It was presented
trough computer visualizations and a 1:20 scale model. (Less)
