In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about intelligent bicycles. What is meant by “intelligent” is never clearly defined, but it implies that the bicycle has the ability to do something beyond rolling along on two tires.
Such a bike was released, not long ago, in The Netherlands.
“The Netherlands launched its first-ever intelligent bicycle, fitted with an array of electronic devices to help bring down the high accident rate among elderly cyclists in the bicycle-mad country. Developed for the government by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), the intelligent bicycle prototype runs on electricity, and sports a forward-looking radar mounted below the handlebars and a camera in the rear mudguard.”
