Those who traverse their city primarily by bike will be overjoyed to hear about the development of the Volvo cyclist communication system. The Swedish automaker is working with POC, a Swedish company that develops high-tech protective equipment for gravity sports athletes, to create a way for cars to communicate with cyclists. This news comes hot on the heels of Volvo's recently developed cyclist-detection technology.
Volvo is mum on the finer details of the project, but it did say that the system would be an extension of its already-existing technology and that cyclists would be given confirmation by the car(s) that they've been detected. As more and more urbanites turn to two wheels, roadways will become more crowded and accidents are bound to increase. The Volvo cyclist communication system is a great place to start when it comes to making city streets safer for both bikers and drivers.
