When I was at Interbike, I met with Gaetano Sciacovelli from eScocialBike. eSocialBike is a diagnostic software for e-bikes that connects the bike to a cloud based system via a smartphone. The system sends diagnostic information from the bike to the e-bike brand and dealer. Overall it helps keep track of what is going on with the e-bike and improves the users experience. Optibike and DiaVelo (among others) will be using the eSocialBike system and you will probably see it on more ebikes in the future.
