Smart bike lights able to report pothole data to councils
Councils can now access data on current and potential potholes from cyclists using connected bike lights, enabling them to undertake proactive maintenance.
The lights from cycling tech and data company See.Sense use patented sensor technology and AI (Artificial Intelligence) to enable cyclists who have opted in to share anonymous real-time data on routes taken, road surface quality and information on accidents or near-miss events – also aiding with planning safer and smarter roads.
The new technology follows last year’s Highways England announcement that future connected cars could automatically report potholes to help other vehicles avoid them while enabling repairs to be scheduled.
