See.Sense is an award-winning cycling technology company that makes unique, intelligent bike lights. The lights help to make cycling safer for cyclists as they are visible in daylight and flash at times of danger. They also collect data insights about the quality of roads that can help local authorities to make decisions about infrastructure. Read more about how See.Sense lights work in this article in the Evening Standard.
ACE makes you more visible at riskier moments, keeps you connected through a smartphone app, and gives you the chance to improve the roads you cycle on. You can learn more about ACE in the video below, and further down the page you can learn how to get involved in the Smart Cycling Project with See.Sense and the University.
The project aims to encourage more people to cycle. It 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 commenced in November and will run for 12 months.
