CYKIQ a bicycle sharing solution incubated at Technology Incubation Center NUST has successfully launched on Wednesday at SEECS, NUST .
Honorable Pro-Rector Research, Innovation and Commercialisation Rear Admiral Dr. Nassar Ikram SI (M) inaugurated the project.
Ammara Tariq and Sanam Khan from NUST School of Art, Design and Architecture, and Anas Shehzad and Hamza Afridi from SEECS worked on the project.
Students will simply have to install an application in their cell phones to access the available bicycle at the nearest point. Bicycles would be parked at five different spots in the campus from where the students may access its availability through the application. “Bicycles will work on ‘sharing model’ which will help in their maximum utilisation. The department to department distance is almost 10 minutes which would be easily covered by bicycle utilisation.
Currently, five spots have been set for bicycle parking including Computer Science department, male and female hostels, cafeteria and the main gate.
NUST students will not have to walk miles .... inside the campus. Cykiq is a bicycle ride solution. The start-up is rooted heavily in its technology-savvy approach to the problem of covering short distances within the campus.
