From a Traditional Bicycle to a Mobile Sensor in the Cities

Abstract

The present study focuses on the development of a web cloud based connectivity platform to apply in the context of cycling. One of the main challenges in using bicycle as mean of transportation is related to the cyclists safety and risk perception. In response to that problem, we propose an IoT based module, that will be embedded in the bicycle, allowing sensor data collection and real time sending to the connectivity platform. The data will be used to perceive cyclists route choice preferences, give support to stakeholders either in making new policies to promote bike use or to give cyclist suggestions about the most convenient route, depending on his profile. The main objective is to transform a traditional bicycle into a mobile sensor in the city. The connectivity platform will enable several services, so the bicycle can easily be integrated in a free floating bike-sharing environment.
