Smart Cycles.

Smartcycles

The Smart Cycle from the Sakai Industry Club incorporates self-correcting steering to make it harder to fall off. Perfect for the elderly or those tired and emotional riders who have trouble navigating their local hi-ways and by-ways. In test and prototype form only at the moment, more’s the pity.

 A sensor to detect the lean of the bicycle is placed under the seat. A device attached to the frame picks up signals from this sensor and automatically turns the handlebars left or right accordingly. For example, if the bicycle is about to fall over to the right, the handlebars are adjusted to the left. The sensor enables slight adjustments to be made at an early stage to maintain balance.
