SAFER BIKING THROUGH ACTIVE SAFETY SOLUTIONS:
SEnsor for Bicycle’s impRoved Awareness (SEBRA)

The project will first identify the most relevant traffic safety related use-cases that involve bicycles. Secondly, a radar-based safety system for bicycles is developed with both sensors and human interface. Finally, the system is evaluated in relevant traffic situations. The research questions the project will investigate are:

• What safety issues can be addressed by a radar-based safety system mounted on bicycles?
• What performance requirements (field-of-view, computational capacity, power consumption, etc.) should such a system fulfil?
• How should the interaction with the bicyclists be designed to give a high level of safety and user experience?

SAFE MOBILITY ON A BICYCLE FOR SUSTAINABLE AGING (SÄMO)

The goal is to identify factors that make the elderly choose the cycle before other means of transport to a greater extent. The project will also contribute to marketing of bicycles that are better adapted to the needs and conditions of the elderly, for example an electricity assisted tricycle, and to spread knowledge to increase safe cycling for the older group and attract new users who do not ride today. The project Safe mobility on a bicycle for sustainable aging (Säker mobilitet på cykel för ett hållbart åldrande - SÄMO) will recruit older people still biking, and not biking anymore. The recruits will evaluate three different type of bicycles at Stora Holm proving ground; one classic bike, one two wheels pedelec and one sneaker. Then a group discussion will be conducted to study older people needs and willingness to bike. Consumer recommendations will finally be published on-line.
