This smart cycling sensor is designed to enhance the safety of bike riders. From hardware startup Tagit Labs, the BikeTag is a smart safety device that uses proximity detection and advanced motion tracking to keep riders from getting knocked off their bikes or badly hurt.

Its crash-detecting and auto-tracking technology sits under the seat of your bicycle. The smart cycling sensor doesn't need to be turned on or off -- once you get moving, it will automatically start working and feed data to your smartphone. If you do get into an accident, it will notify your family and friends. The premium version of the system also has a ride alerts feature that notifies your loved ones when you get home safely, should you undertake a late night ride. BikeTag also has live tracking.
