Bike Warns Cyclists When Fast-Moving Objects Get Too Close

Urban cyclists have to be incredibly aware of their surroundings when riding on the road, yet the Intelligent Bicycle takes the pressure off their minds slightly by providing them with a sophisticated warning system. The Intelligent Bicycle is able to detect with a deadly, fast-moving object is close by in order to prevent a life-threatening accident.

The saddle and handlebars of the Intelligent Bicycle vibrate when this occurs, which helps people snap to attention in order to be hyper aware of their surroundings and imminent danger. Created by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), the Intelligent Bicycle also comes with a camera system that uses image processing to detect multiple vehicles at the same time. In tandem with something like the Volvo helmet, accidents could become a thing of the past.
