The New Paper, 21 Jan 2017 - Article featured the Smart Bike Alarm that was showcased at the SP Engineering Show 2017. The Smart Bike Alarm was requested by security company Adsec Singapore and was developed by three Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE) students. It is aimed at cyclists who leave their bicycles unattended for a short while. The alarm will sound when it senses that the parked bicycle is being moved for a prolonged period of time. Coordinates of the bike's location are then sent to the owner. DEEE student Bernard Soh Ee Siang, shared that he is an avid cyclist, and has had two bicycles stolen in five years. He therefore accepted his lecturer’s challenge of building a smart bicycle alarm to address the problem of bike thefts. Article mentioned that Adsec Singapore is already looking for investors for the alarm. Mr Geoffrey Foo, general manager of Adsec Singapore, opined that as Singapore move towards becoming a cycling nation, there will be a greater need for the smart bike alarm.
