Taipei Cycle Show To Reflect Taiwan’s Industry Focus on E-Bikes
TAIPEI, Taiwan – That Taiwan is preparing for a take-over of China’s role as Europe’s biggest supplier of e-bikes, will be strongly reflected at the upcoming Taipei Cycle Show. At a recently held press conference on the 2018 edition of this show, projections were made on the course of the bicycle industry for the next years. It’s all about smart e-bikes.
The 2018 Taipei Cycle Show, taking place from 31 October – 3 November, is “To propel the bicycle industry in Taiwan and globally into a new era, by systematically introducing intelligent applications into products and production processes.”
IoT, Big Data & digitization
Organizer Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) says on the upcoming show in Taipei “With the Internet of Things (IoT) to Big Data, digitization transforms industries and daily lives. Cycling may be shared on social media and rider safety may be monitored real-time, with smart upgrades via connected mobile devices and software. Taiwan bicycle industry is becoming even more efficient in manufacturing with Industry 4.0 process improvements.”
