An Assam Rifles ITI Technology student has created a ‘theft-proof’ electronic bicycle with modern sensors and tracking systems.

Samrat Nath, a 19-year-old from Assam’s Karimganj district, created the e-bike, which is powered by Lithium-ion batteries salvaged from old laptops.

After four years of dedication, Samrat has made it possible.

The e-bike is projected to have a range of 60 kilometres on a single charge and a top speed of 40 kilometres per hour, according to reports.

To avoid being stolen, Samrat created the smart e-bike. The e-bike is equipped with numerous safety features.

“If anyone tries to steal my bike then a message will appear on my smartphone and the theft alarm in the bike will start ringing,” Samrat said while speaking to the media.

He also stated that he can use the application to control the bike from anywhere in the world.

He also said that he installed a fingerprint feature on his bike for increased security.

When his uncle’s bike was stolen when he was in Class 8, Samrat came up with the concept to construct such an e-bike.

Samrat revealed that he learned about the workings and systems of an e-bike by watching countless YouTube videos.

“I did not have any money to buy these expensive devices. So I started learning to code on YouTube and learned how to create an electric circuit for an e-bicycle. To fund the project, I started working at a local mobile repairing shop,” he said.
