All cyclists can benefit from improved cycling infrastructure, but cities often lack the information needed to plan it optimally. With our new product See.Sense ACE and in our closed city trials using ICON, you can now share insights with your city, helping them plan effectively.
See.Sense technology uses patented sensor technology to monitor the environment around you as you cycle (e.g. road surface, light levels) as well as your unique riding style. We use this information to help our lighting products be at the forefront of design, but there’s another use case too. By using the anonymised and aggregated information that our products collect, we can help cities become safer and smarter.
Our technology has helped us win a number of , including the BT SME Award for Connected Cities (held in conjunction with the UK Cabinet Office) and to be one of the winners of the Smart Dublin Cycling Challenge SBIR.
Working with BT on UK's largest smart city demonstrator.
See.Sense has partnered with BT to deploy a project in Manchester for CityVerve, UK’s largest smart city demonstrator. Over 180 cyclists are currently taking part
Smart Impact Case Study “So far, the trial has helped us engage with the cycling community and to sustain these relationships. We achieved a representative pool of cyclists who reflected the average commuter profile. It created an understanding of the value of real-time data and how to use this to improve cycling infrastructure and inform policies, particularly in relation to cycling safety. This should help to identify ways of reducing the barriers to cycling”.
The world's largest connected cycle light trial.
Jamie Cudden, Smart City Program Manager "As a result of winning a Phase 1 and 2 small business innovation challenge (SBIR), See.Sense partnered with Dublin City Council and Smart Dublin to run the world's largest connected cycle light pilot. This pilot generated fantastic engagement with our cycling community with over 500 commuter cyclists taking part keeping them safer on their journeys in the city. It also produced never-before-seen data and insights that going forward will aid planning for better cycle infrastructure and policies to increase the modal share of cycling in our city”
Our world-first technology can fully integrate inside a city bike and is easily retrofitted.
Data collection is NOT currently enabled on our retail ICON lights. It is currently only enabled through a special app that our beta test groups and city trial participants have access to.
With the launch of ACE, we are excited to be able to open up the ability for all our customers to contribute anonymised insights for their city - you can opt in or opt out at any time. All data collected is anonymised and aggregated and we’ll always protect your privacy first and foremost.
