Free bike program is spread all over the world and bikes are considered an important transportation method in urban area. Expensive bikes are also used in leisure. However, bikes are often lost and broken by a thief. To solve these problem, we developed a low-priced smart device attachable to a bike. We also developed a smart phone application for the device. The device has a differential global position system, a vibration sensor, and a communication module. If parked bike is touched by someone, the device detects a vibration and sends an alarm message to predefined phone number. When the user rides a bike, the device gets the GPS signal and sends the position to a smart phone application. The application shows current position on the map and also displays travel history. We also proposed a communication method for multiple bikes travel. It is cost effective and requires lower battery power. The smart device and application provides anti-theft function, tracking the travel path and current position on the map.
