For cyclists the innovative technology of TNO that warns of hazardous situations will be available. In the presence of Minister Schultz van Haegen (Infrastructure and Environment) the first ride outside is made on the first 'smart bike’ that warns of dangerous situations.
The initiative is developed by TNO, the Dutch Cyclists Organization and Roessingh R & D, with the support of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. The innovations must in particular increase bicycle safety of the elderly because older cyclists are a particularly vulnerable group in traffic.
Minister Schultz is happy with these innovations: "It is important that people continue cycling, even when we are older. The smart solutions that are presented can help older people to stay safely in traffic."
