User Experience

Unlocking

During the rental process, the user will be asked to enter a bike number or will get to this screen via scanning a QR code. Once the rental starts, the app will transition to a "Searching for Bike" screen and it will ask the user to hold their phone close to the bike so that the Bluetooth can detect the lock and connect. The lock will make a loud noise as it attempts to unlock (As shown in the video below). When the unlock is successful, the user will see the Rental Started screen as shown here:

Locking

To lock the bike, the user will need to go back on the app and click "End Rental" > Hold their phone close to the bike > Click Lock and they will be prompted to a screen that will instruct them how to pull down the orange tab on the Axa Lock.
