Currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo, the Byxee is a smart bicycle device that is designed to warm cyclists of impending dangers on the road. The invention is capable of scanning the road ahead of the bike and alerting riders of any road hazards or irregular surfaces (such as potholes) coming up.
The safety gadget is attached to the bicycle's handlebars. Byxee uses advanced video to identify potential dangers that are up to 80 feet ahead by analyzing shadows. The warning signal notifies bikers with a noisy beeping, allowing them to avoid any harmful situations.
This is an excellent example of how technology can be used to protect cyclists and make road conditions safer. This could come in particularly handy for cities with cable cars or un-separate bike lanes.
