Milton Park is to trial 30 free new See Sense bike light sensors to bring people and technology together to help improve and prioritise cycle investment and journeys for people working on the park and the local community.
The project aims to encourage more people to cycle, and will see hundreds of cyclists use the award-winning See.Sense bike light and accompanying app, to collect data on journeys, speed, delays, road surface quality, collisions, near miss and other self-reported events.
De-personalised insights will then be shared with the transport planners in the Council and at Milton Park, to gain a better understanding of the conditions faced by cyclists, so that improvements can be made.
The project will run for 12 months, from November 2019.
This project seeks to engage with our Milton Park community to gather insights that will help us to encourage sustainable travel to the Park and help us to realise our 2040 Vision”
"We are excited to work with Smart Oxford and Milton Park to bring technology and the cycling community together, to enable more cycling and improve journeys for everyone."
“We are teaming up with Oxfordshire County Council on this project as part of our Vision 2040 to provide 30 free lights to make cycling safer and the mode of choice for anyone living within five miles of Milton Park."
The See.Sense PROJECT lights differ from the standard See.Sense retail lights in that opt-in to the app is prompted each time you charge your light, if your app is not connected. The prompt is in the form of brightness. If your lights and app and not connected, then the lights will function at 10% capacity only. Once the connection with the app has been made, full brightness is restored. This prompt will occur each time the light is charged, if the app is not on or on in the background.
