CycleEye® is enabled by world-class radar and camera imaging expertise:
Our engineering team has a background in high performance radar and imaging techniques, with direct experience in their implementation in power efficient, highly effective systems.
All Weather, Day and Night Detection: CycleEye® employs radar and camera sensors, fusing the data together with state of the art and proprietary techniques.
Active Detection: CycleEye® is unique. The detection algorithms enable a cycle to be detected against a background of road clutter such as lampposts, railings and other vehicles to provide all weather, day and night detection.
Faster Response from Busy Drivers and Fewer False Alerts: Competitor systems available today provide camera views of blind-spots around the vehicle, and rely on the driver to take their eyes off the road to scan a monitor. Typically they do not differentiate between detected objects, so will cause many false alerts. This increases the burden on an already busy driver.
CycleEye® only alerts the driver when a cycle has been actively detected, for example by announcing “Cyclist Left”.
This not only reduces false alerts, but reduces the cognitive load on a busy driver, enabling a faster response in potentially critical situations, in turn providing a more effective detector.
CycleEye® will help make cycling safer in the city:
CycleEye® will ensure drivers know when a cyclist is in close proximity to their vehicle, thereby removing the potential for collisions where cyclists and commercial vehicles share busy urban roads. The introduction of CycleEye® will make cities safer and help city authorities plan increased use of cycling in their cities.
CycleEye® can be Retrofitted or Original Equipment fitted to Trucks & Buses:
CycleEye® systems are on trial in buses in Bristol and London, and a universal roof mount system for trucks will be available later in 2014. Contact the CycleEye® team to arrange to view CycleEye® in action and discuss the introduction of CycleEye® to your vehicle fleet or your city.
