Tel-o-fun approaches Ziv-Av for improvement in bicycle lock design

Tel-o-Fun’s bicycle’s locks needed urgent failure analysis and improvement due to various technical issues and enhanced vandal-proofing, which were badly affecting the company’s services and reputation.

Tel-o-Fun approached Ziv-Av for this challenging job to diagnose the sources of these technical issues and provide the right solution within a very tight timeline.

Ziv-Av identifies and diagnoses multitude issues of Tel-o-Fun locking system and designs the improved solution

Ziv-Av performed critical analysis to investigate various technical faults of 4000 locking stations around the city and successfully identified the reasons for failures in a very tight schedule.

Among numerous multi-parallel problems identified by Ziv-Av, one was improper functioning of the RF card due to the damages caused by shocks. Ziv-Av designed a special partition and mount to absorb the shocks and eliminate the RF card malfunctions.
