Bikesharing Redistribution using User Involvement

Thesis type
  • Master
Status Cancelled

Vehicle Sharing Systems like Bikesharing allow Users to return the vehicle (bike) at the different places compared to where it was taken from. This can lead to empty or full rental stations which is not desirable for users. 

The task of this thesis is to investigate the possibility to convince users to move the vehicle with respect the current demand to prevent empty/full stations. The task involves developing an algorithm to detect required redistribution and to create a mobile application to convince users, possibly by the means of gamification. The thesis will be conducted in cooperation with VeloCity who offer a real bikesharing system in Aachen.


Experience in Java EE Technology and Mobile Development or the willingness to learn is required.
