Orbic’s new technology actively monitors the rear surroundings of the eBike and alerts riders to potential hazards, such as oncoming vehicles. Revealed at the recent 2024 MWC Barcelona, this “groundbreaking technology” establishes a new era in smart transportation, prioritizing rider safety, advanced 5G connectivity, and environmental sustainability.

“Introducing Orbic’s 5G e-Bike at MWC Barcelona is part of our innovation pipeline that implements advanced technology to expand connectivity and enhance user experiences,” said Mike Narula, President and CEO of Orbic. “By integrating 5G connectivity and AI technology, we aim to redefine the riding experience, making it safer, more connected, and environmentally responsible whether on city streets, in suburban neighborhoods or the challenging terrain of mountain trails. The 5G e-Bike represents a significant leap forward in electronic mobility, and we are excited about bringing this new technology to cities across the globe.”

The 5G e-Bike, capable of reaching up to 45km/h*, incorporates an advanced AI avoidance detection system that leverages a sensor with a 140 degree field of view strategically placed on the rear of the bike. The sensor provides continuous surveillance of the rider’s environment, delivering instant audible and visual alerts to enhance awareness and safety.

The 5G e-Bike is equipped with a stunning front-facing 64MP camera tailor-made for capturing and livestreaming every adventure, an 8MP camera on the front display perfect for video calls, and a 2MP rear camera for enhanced rider safety, collision avoidance and object detection.

Moreover, the bike’s 7-inch bright all weather touchscreen display conveniently showcases the rider’s battery status, speed, distance, maps, tracking, and various other functionalities so users can safely remain focused on the path ahead. The Orbic 5G e-Bike acts as a hotspot to extend connectivity anywhere; at a picnic, on the trail, and even at home at a backyard barbeque.

At the heart of the 5G e-Bike is its high-speed 5G connectivity, ensuring less lag time between user actions and optimizing the speed of communications for a seamless and responsive user experience.

In addition, bike-to-bike communication creates a fully immersive experience and communication between riders for increased safety and camaraderie. Riders can also easily access real-time maps, and tracking functionality, enabling riders to navigate their surroundings with precision.
