Young People’s Cycling ‘In the Wild’: Insights from Sensor Data

Participant Information Page

WHAT IS THE BIKEABILITY WIDENING PARTICIPATION PROJECT?

Thanks to funding from the Department for Transport, The Bikeability Trust are working with researchers at Brunel University London and See.Sense to look at visual learning factors for children undertaking Level 2 Bikeability Training. The study aims to use its findings to support more children to go on to complete Level 3 Bikeability Training. One element of the study will involve 50 children (with parent/carer consent) using a See.Sense ACE rear bike light on their rides. The lights are able to collect data on rider behaviours and road conditions to support the study. Children will need to use their light on every ride (day or night) and to make sure it is connected to the mobile app.

 

HOW SEE.SENSE TECHNOLOGY AND DATA INSIGHTS SUPPORT THE PROGRAMME

The See.Sense ACE bike light is an award-winning light that helps to make cycling safer by being visible in daylight and reacting by flashing brighter & faster in riskier moments. It also connects to a free companion app to provide you with a range of connected features, and to allow data to be shared with the project. Find out more about See.Sense ACE bike lights here

 

INSIGHTS FOR PROJECT USERS

As a participant you and your child can use the free See.Sense app to obtain your child’s personal ride stats, in an easy to use, and inspiring way. The stats include distance travelled, calories burned, and CO2 saved. The parent will also optionally receive a personalised monthly ‘Vision’ email showing your child’s personal ride stats, allowing a month to month comparison.

 

 

INSIGHTS FOR THE WIDENING PARTICIPATION PROJECT

Sensor data insights gathered from the devices will also be shared with the project to help evaluate the programme, and also to help understand and improve conditions for cycling. The data insights shared include routes, speed, dwell-time, braking, swerving, road surface roughness, perception reports (from reports made by the user in-app). 

 

DATA PRIVACY

In order to receive the See.Sense light and participate in the Widening Participation project, the parent or guardian must first provide consent for the child to participate. For information about the Mobile App terms and conditions and Mobile App privacy policy for this project, please click here.


We advise that the parent/guardian creates a privacy zone in the app, to protect the home address of any individual. A video guide on setting up a privacy zone can be found
here.

5. RIDE!

 

Once you are connected, your app will remember your lights and automatically start collecting data as soon as you start riding. For this to happen, just remember to check you have the following in place for each ride 

  • Location settings enabled 
  • App is open or in the background
  • Our light is connected to the app (you will see a small blue LED will flash on the top left of your light when connected)
  • Your light must be on (even in daylight). See.Sense lights only send data while your light is on
