The world of mobility is being digitized, resulting in an intelligent transportation system (ITS). Bicycles can play a significant role in this, and can even become a key pillar of a sustainable, safe and effective mobile society. However, so far they are not fully integrated into the new era, which will bring potential risks due to the shared road infrastructures and unexpected cycling behaviour.
To address this, the Smart Connected Bikes Research and Innovation program organises a competition on making bikes smarter by leveraging the digital technologies. The participants can use real-time data collection, wireless communication and data analytics to make cycling safer, more comfortable, and healthier.
Participants are having the chance to win great prizes. The team with the best system design will win a bike shop voucher of €250. Even the best failure won't go home empty-handed!
If you want to participate in the competition, make sure you register your team before the 3rd of November. Make sure that you submit a short proposal, the short idea and budget requirements.
If you have any questions about the competition. Please contact dr. Yanqiu Huang.
This competition is being organised by the UTwente, TU Delft and TU Eindhoven, with the finical support from 4TU.NIRICT.
The SCB-program aims to design, develop and test a smart cycling ecosystem. The program is a collaboration between the University of Twente, Accell Group, TNO, Delft University of Technology and Saxion University of Applied Science.
More information about the program can be found on the SCB-website.
