1. A heartbeat control system for shared bicycles, comprising: a server configured to:
divide, based on a virtual map, an area that includes the shared bicycles into a plurality of parking zones;
obtain a usage state of each shared bicycle in each of the plurality of parking zones during a time period; and
determine an off-peak period and a peak period of each of the plurality of parking zones; and
a lock control device mounted on one of the shared bicycles, wherein the lock control device includes a network module that is periodically actuated by the lock control device, and the lock control device is configured to:
obtain, based on a parking zone of the shared bicycle, an off-peak period and a peak period corresponding to the parking zone;
extend an actuation frequency of the network module during the off-peak period± wherein the lock control device includes a positioning module configured to periodically upload location information to the server, and the server is further configured to:
divide, based on the location information, the shared bicycle to the corresponding parking zone; and
send the off-peak period and the peak period corresponding to the parking zone to the lock control device.
