Mike Winter on his Bike Safety Device

June 1, 2012

Mike Winter does a lot of crazy research projects, including building an autonomous motorcycle. But when his daughter was in a bicycle accident a couple of years ago, he started thinking about bike safety. Specifically, he built a device with an Arduino CPU and a few sensors that attaches to your bike and connects with your smartphone. Mike’s invention will let bikes and cars be more aware of each others’ presence, track close calls, and alert the cyclist to any upcoming hazards. In this entertaining video below, Mike shows off the device as well as a pair of his own home-brewed Google goggles. (Filmed by the Bay Area QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
