Vehicle companion application

The companion app was born out of the idea of creating a scooter that would work without a physical key. A companion app was the perfect platform to host a digital key. Then, we realized the wide range of functionality we could offer with an app. Since the key was not physical anymore, it could be shared at any time with anyone. Thus, was born the concept of the scooter sharing functionality.

This concept was in its inception in car-sharing projects, but we were the first ones to build this functionality for a private vehicle.

Ujet would face many hurdles as it was ahead of its time in terms of technology.

In 2016, the Bluetooth cyphering technology wasn’t safe to easily and securely share access to the scooter. Therefore, we had to build our custom cyphering solution to have secure sharing functionality. As the Bluetooth technology caught up, we migrated back to the Bluetooth sharing system as it was easier to maintain and update.

The Ujet companion app is developed to immediately complement our scooter in a way that allows the driver to immediately communicate with his two-wheeler.
The app is directly connected to the scooter (through Bluetooth/Wi-Fi) or can be connected through our cloud solution.

It offers a wide range of functionalities such as the ability to use it as a digital key to lock/unlock your scooters remotely, manage and check your multiple scooters at a glance, share your scooter access to one of your contact, or even see how much battery percentage is remaining.

The companion app allows you to localize your scooter on the map at any time, so you always know where it is. This GPS-tracking system also serves as an anti-theft system in case of emergency.

The technology of our app is not only built for smart, connected scooters but also non-digital two-wheelers. With a change of configuration and the integration of a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chip, the companion app can serve as a standalone digital companion for a vehicle without an in-vehicle infotainment system.

It means that a non-digital two-wheeler that uses CAN-Bus (Control Area System) or similar data transfer technology can be turned into a digital device by adding a low-cost BLE chip and connecting it to Ujet’s companion app’s API.
