Overview

Background & Policy context

Mobility is an important factor in our everyday lives. Therefore, new systems of human-technology interaction should be developed, which will contribute to more safety, comfort and reliability in this area. Cyclists and especially children on bicycles are among the most vulnerable road users in road traffic as they are almost unprotected. Children also have little experience in dealing with dangers.

Objectives

The aim of the Safety4Bikes project is to develop modular assistance systems for cyclists who, based on the current traffic situation, recognise imminent dangers and point out the correct behaviour. The modular system, consisting of a networked bicycle, intelligent helmet and smartphone, recognises potential hazardous situations and draws attention to safe behaviour on the road. This not only increases the safety and independence of cycling children, but also, in the future, of other road users who benefit from this development.

Methodology

In case of acute hazards or in potential hazardous situations, the system warns in terms of acoustic, optical or haptic signals on the helmet or handlebars. The project will investigate which form of warning information is most suitable for this purpose. In addition, a communication interface with other road users should improve safety
