Smart Oxford and Oxfordshire County Council Smart Cycling Project

Smart Oxford and Oxfordshire County Council are seeking volunteers to participate in a smart cycling project using See.Sense lights, that will connect over 300 cyclists across Oxfordshire.

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. 


“Smart Oxford are delighted to work with See.Sense and Oxfordshire County Council as part of this Smart Cycling project. The data gathered will generate information that will help the citizens of Oxfordshire to contribute insights to Oxfordshire County Council, giving cyclists a clearer voice and helping the council to better understand the needs of cyclists. This allows the council to make data-driven decisions on the design of cycle infrastructure and better understand how the roads are used. This fits with the Smart Oxford ethos of bringing citizens and government closer together to make Oxfordshire a better place for all”. - Tony Hart, Smart Oxford Program Manager

 


“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". - Irene McAleese, Co-founder & CSO See.Sense

Important notice:

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.
