Dubliners are being invited to take part in a new initiative to help improve cycling conditions in the city.

Members of the public will be able to fix data capturing lights to their bikes this summer.

The information will then be shared with city planners.

 

Dublin City Council and Smart Dublin have teamed up to collect data from cyclists this summer.

The See.Sense bike lights will be attached to bikes and will react to moments when a cyclist may be at risk by automatically flashing brighter and faster.

Technology inside the lights will collect data on journey, speed, road surface quality and near miss events.

Christopher Manzira, Senior Transportation Officer with Dublin City Council says, 'We are delighted to work with See.Sense and BT as part of the Synchronicity initiative.

'The rich data gathered from this approach will generate unique insights into the experience of cycling in our city.

'It will help to inform our strategies for overall mobility.

'How we promote active travel, plan, engage with citizens. And how we evaluate the impact of new cycling infrastructure investment.'

 

 

As Irene McAleese, Co-founder of See.Sense says, 'We are excited to work with Dublin City Council and Smart Dublin once again. In order to bring technology and the cycling community together, to enable more cycling and improve journeys for everyone.'

The project runs from June to August.
