See.Sense Smart Cycle Pilot UpdateBack to News, Blogs & Events
Last July we announced that See. Sense was going to run a pilot with Smart ICON, their cycling light, which gathers a wide range of anonymised sensor data to inform city planners how to improve cycling infrastructure and policies to promote cycling in the city. The call for volunteers was a success with over 1,400 people signing up.
The pilot started in September with 500 volunteers from County Dublin. It is still on-going and further analysis of the data will be completed to generate insights for Dublin. See. Sense is working with Queen’s University Belfast on their data analytics and have published some of their results so far.

The award winning lights are designed by Northern Ireland based See.Sense to be daylight visible, enhancing cyclist safety in all lighting conditions. The light recently won ‘Best Bike Gadget’ by readers of road.cc, the UK’s biggest online cycling website. It uses sensor technology to flash brighter and faster in riskier situations such as road junctions and roundabouts. The sensors can also anonymously gather data on the cyclist’s environment such as the quality of the road surface, cycling routes, accidents and near-miss events – ‘providing accurate quantitative and qualitative data, allowing the city to be mapped like never before’
