What’s in a CycloTrac App?
Boomerang’s CycloTrac is a highly sophisticated system with four key components: the
Device, the Cloud, the App, and the Dashboard. The CycloTrac device goes on the bike,
where it transmits data to a server in the Cloud, which displays that data in the App on your
phone and on the Dashboard you can view on your computer.
Get a better view and more access to tracking, ride
performance and even heat maps
Access your dashboard using the link at the top of the Boomerang homepage. Use your Boomerang
password to get into the Main Dashboard showing bike locations, ride duration and performance, money
saved, carbon offset, total miles ridden, message log and last trip. Leftside navigation gets you to more
Heat maps gives you a visual pattern of where you ride most.
Bike Inventory contains important data: Serial number, battery and signal level, exact location
device temp, remote bike speed, recent trips data and more.
How It Works
The device has a GPS chip, and a Verizon Cellular radio plus a TI CPU and other sensors.
The GPS and sensors collect data and the Verizon Radio sends it to the Cloud. The majority
of the data processing is done on the server in the cloud. Once the incoming data has
been analyzed and organized, it is sent and displayed on the App and the Dashboard
We have designed the system to provide the bike owner with notifications through text
message and email. If the bike is armed and someone moves it, the owner gets a message.
We can also create a Geo-fence, a virtual barrier that is created by using the GPS to define
geographical boundaries. If the bike leaves or crosses these boundaries, an alert will be
triggered and sent to the bike owner’s device. The fence can be at any distance to be
at ½ mile, 3 miles, or 10 miles. The alert goes to anyone you choose.
There are two ways to monitor your bike. You can set the alarm and if your bike is disturbed
you receive a message. Or you can just watch your bike on the App or dashboard and you
will see if it moves.
Remember, the audible alarm will only be triggered if the CycloTrac has been armed via
the app. If not, the GPS will still function, but the audible alarm will not go off and the owner
will not be alerted when the bike is moved.
In addition to theft prevention, we also provide the rider information about their ride
including gas savings and carbon offset. We plan to add more features and trackable
metrics on a regular basis.
