Smart tech has made driving cars easier. These NAU engineers want to do the same for bikes
Cars are seemingly constantly adding new technologies to make them “smarter:” adaptive cruise control, lane-adjust sensors and information about road and traffic conditions.
Those technologies have not yet made it to bicycles, but a team at Northern Arizona University is trying to change that.
The group of engineers is working on a smart bike, which will provide riders with real-time information about the available bike infrastructure in a particular area, among other things.
Chun-Hsing Ho is an assistant professor in NAU’s department of civil engineering, construction management and environmental engineering.
The Show spoke with him to learn about the project.
