25 Smart Cycling Precautions

From Laser Bike Light Indicators to Traffic-Sensing Cycling Devices

— April 1, 2016 — Eco
From laser-projecting bike light indicators to radar system that detect oncoming vehicles, there is a clear demand for smart cycling precautions. These innovations not only ensure that drivers are aware of the increasing number of cyclists on the road, but they also help to keep cyclists informed about potential hazards.

Instead of relying on reflective garments, cyclists can now turn to high-tech devices to ensure they are visible to drivers and other riders. For example, the Alltoo Smart Bike Light uses lasers to indicate which direction a rider is turning. Another example is the the Road Trace Sensor Light, which automatically adjusts the level of light based on the cyclist's surroundings.

Of course, not all cycling precautions are related to visibility. Indeed, there are an increasing number of gadgets designed to make sure that riders are more aware of their surroundings and any potential hazards they may encounter. These smart devices include compasses that allow for hands-free navigation, traffic-sensing radar systems and augmented reality glasses that provide riders with visual updates.
