Crowdsourced data collected with patent-pending See.Sense devices is helping cities make more intelligent decisions about cycle infrastructure and planning.
See.Sense produces patent-pending sensor technology to solve real problems for cyclists and at the same time, produce crowd-sourced sensor data to help create smart and future cities. We aim to help people have a more enjoyable cycling experience, by enhancing safety and helping to reduce bicycle theft.
Cyclists are empowered to collect unique crowd-sourced data about their journey, that is useful for city planners who want to create better cycling infrastructure and smart cities. It is also useful information for cyclists who want to plan safer and better journeys.
Our technology is available either as a consumer product, or it can be integrated into a city bike scheme, which quickly opens up a low-cost mobile sensor network platform for a city.
In addition to providing highly accurate, real-time and unique data, See.Sense also provides innovative applications, real-time monitoring and data visualisation services and analysis to extract meaning from the data.
As a result of winning the BT SME Award for Connected Cities, See.Sense was invited to work with the city of Milton Keynes to showcase our technology. Participating cyclists are given a state-of-the-art intelligent and connected ICON cycle light to use regularly when cycling. The data collected from our device is streamed to the BT Smart Hub where it will be used with other city data to inform the city's mobility plans.
As part of the Smart Dublin Cycling Challenge, See.Sense has been selected to work with Dublin City Council to help enhance understanding of cycling issues through our innovative data. We will work with cyclists in the city who are using our ICON lights, so that real-time, crowdsourced data can be gathered to help the city develop strategies to promote the modal share of cycling. More details to follow soon!
Data collection is NOT currently enabled on all retail ICON lights. It is currently only enabled through a special app that our beta test groups and city trial participants have access to. Our long term vision is to make it available to all customers but we will ask your permission first via the app. All data will be anonymous and aggregated and we’ll always protect your privacy first and foremost.
