What is Cycle Alert
Cycle Alert is a groundbreaking safety awareness system that unites road users and encourages safer travel on the roads. It comprises of three units: a sensor fitted to a bicycle, a sensor fitted to a vehicle and a dashboard receiver. The three components communicate notifying a driver when a cyclist is in close proximity.
THE CYCLE TAG
The Cycle Tag is a motion activated tag attached to the person, the helmet or on the cycle. The Tag sends a message to sensors mounted on the Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV).
THE HGV SENSORS
The HGV sensors receive the signal from the Cycle Sensor and relays this information to the HGV Cab Unit.
The HGV Cab Unit
The Cab Unit receives the message that a Cyclist is present. The Cab Unit alerts the driver with the warning “cyclist” and displays the Cyclist’s position on a screen.
