How do I get the barcodes?

You have a few options:

Can I use QR barcodes?

We do not recommend them as our extensive testing showed that its not suitable for the bike rental:

  • They do not work well on curved surfaces.
  • Lighting conditions for how some rental bikes are stored is not always optimal. As QR/2D codes work using optical recognition they don’t always work.
  • Too slow.  Over a second compared to a few milliseconds.  Its just not viable for bike rental.
  • There is much less margin for error with QR/2D codes.  And you need that margin with bikes, as they scratched, or partially obscured by mud/rain etc.
