Cycling technology and data insight company See.Sense, based in Newtownards, produces innovative AI-enabled bike lights that give cyclists more visibility on their ride, while also providing cities with more information about their roads. It has already piloted partnerships with local authorities across Europe to provide insights that are helping to determine the layout and design of future cycling infrastructure.
See.Sense is now lending its technology to support the response to the COVID-19 crisis. It has developed a new app feature called ‘Infrastructure Request’ which will allow all cyclists, no matter where they are, to provide anonymised insights on the suitability of cycling infrastructure for social-distancing measures. The UK government has now announced a £2bn package to create “a new era for cycling and walking” and to relieve the pressure on public transport. See.Sense is providing data insights from the SeeSenseReports for free to City planners and local authorities for their location, to help with the design of pop-up bike lanes with protected space for cycling, wider pavements, safer junctions, and cycle and bus-only corridors.
