People's research on car-sharing can be traced back to the 1940s, and Sefage, which started operation in Zurich, is the prototype of car-sharing. Due to the limited level of technology at the time, it was very inconvenient for people to use the car-sharing system. In the 1970s, some people began to explore how to build vehicle control systems based on computers. The first real car sharing company CarSharing Portland was born in the United States in 1998. Today, car-sharing has spread all over the world. Zipcar, Car2Go and GOFUN are the representative brands in the United States, Europe and China respectively.
The year 2015 was defined by the outside world as the first year of car sharing in China. By the end of 2017, there were 60,000 car-sharing vehicles in operation nationwide, 35 car-sharing brands with certain vehicle regulations, and 340 registered companies.
After fierce market competition, the car-sharing country email list industry has undergone a relatively full reshuffle. At present, the national shared car brands still surviving on the market mainly include GOFUN of Shouqi Group, Linkage Cloud of Baoneng Group, EVCARD of SAIC Group and Mofan Travel of BAIC Group.
Data collection and data online are necessary conditions for digitization, while intelligence is a sufficient and unnecessary condition for digitization. The shared car is a good realization of data collection, data online and intelligent control. Personally, I believe that the essence of car sharing is to use the Internet of Things and Internet technology to digitally transform the car rental industry. Such transformation is mainly realized through the intelligent network connection device TBox and several software systems.
TBox: A small box connected to the OBD interface. It mainly does two things, one is to control the door lock, and the other is to collect data.
Client App: Provide services directly to users. The main functions include placing orders, switching locks, returning cars, honking, reporting accidents, and handling violations of laws and regulations.
Vehicle System App: Operation and maintenance system, which can be used to handle insurance, maintenance, scheduling and cleaning, etc. The users include internal and external operation and maintenance personnel and partners.
Operation platform: The main tool for platform operation, with rich functions, covering user management, vehicle management, station management, vehicle operation principles, customer service management, etc.
