A secure digital identifier for bicycle tracking

IN Groupe was entrusted by APIC with the design of the trust system for cycle identification to contribute to the traceability of bicycles.

Client needs

The Ministry of Transport aims to achieve two objectives:

  • Speed up the use of bicycles as a means of transport in order to reduce the risk of theft
  • Help with the return of bicycles in case of theft and thus fight against fencing by making it easier for the owner of the bicycle to report it

IN Groupe's response

In order to meet this need, APIC chose IN Groupe to design a new trust service for users. IN Groupe has deployed a platform with the best current standards by associating:

  • The provision of digital cycle identifiers from authorised identification operators.

  • Centralized and independent storage of identifiers.

  • The use of blockchain technologies to secure data.

  • Compliance with the RGPD regulations to ensure that users' personal data is protected.

  • Simplification of the procedures for reporting loss or theft and for securing the purchase of a second-hand bicycle.

  • Providing the authorities with a tool to help return a bike to its owner by contacting him or her directly.

Client benefits

  • A secure digital identifier that responds to each stage of the bike's life cycle.

  • The possibility for the owner to recover his cycle if it has been stolen.

  • The protection of users' personal data, based on a blockchain-based bicycle identification and tracking technology.
