What is the problem you found?
How might we make it safe for the cyclists and drivers on the road?
Customer / Problem
In 2016 there was the same percentage of injuries to cyclists as there were to all motor vehicles. Cyclists on the road is a massive problem and it is one of the biggest killers on our roads.
Cyclists have no devices which can warn them of oncoming traffic.
What Is Your Solution?
Sensors for cyclists and car drivers to alert them that danger is close. This way we can keep cyclists safe.
So our solution is to create a kit to stop accidents and anger on the road which gives you eyes for every direction so there in no excuses or issues on the road.
We have no idea where we can start to develop the sensors. Technical advice will be most welcomed.
