1 Safe-Cyclist Project (Night-Rider) Anthony Rowe Assistant Research Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Carnegie Mellon University

2 Is cycling safe? Yes and No 677 Killed in 2011 (32,367 by car) –2.17 per million riders (1.10 by car) –72% Urban –33% at Intersections –53% during evening commute (4pm-12am) –Average age for deaths 43 Est. 48,000 Injured in 2011 –Average age for injury 32 –Many not reported 2

3 Lots of activity in this space… “Gadgets to Boost Bike Safety” - NYT Hovding Airbag SMART sensor helmet Helios Bars BLAZE Headlight

4 How can technology help? Crowd-Source Safe Routes Hazardous Zone Detection –Pot hole, stressful roads, user labels Collision Avoidance Smart Lighting –Adaptive and reactive Auto 911 for accidents Traffic Law Notification Video Accident Logging 4

5 IMU Smartphone Hub -IMU, GPS Battery Electronics -DSRC, CPU Power / Cadence Tail Lights Rumble Bar Speakers Electronics Pkg Motor Front Video Rear Video Body Worn - Heart Rate Monitor Radar, FLIR optical flow, Laser Projection Wind Sensor Speed

6 Target Solutions Smartphone PnP Architecture Vehicle Proximity Detection Reactive Lighting Connected Helmet Rumble Bars 6

7 Existing Bike Peripherals Bluetooth Strain Gauge power meter + cadence Heart Rate Monitor Smartphone Mounts Tire Pressure Monitor

8 Smartphone PnP Architecture Smartphone PubSub Camera Accelerometer DSRC Rumbler Bars Headlight Tail light Helmet Audio LED Mirror GPS Plugin Dictionary Sensors Actuators Logging

9 Vehicle Proximity Detection Previous attempts include: –Ultrasound, RADAR, LIDAR, cameras, … DSRC + Differential GPS 9 Arada LocoMate ME Bluetooth, DSRC, GPS RTKLib + Radio PMUs

10 Reactive Lighting 10 Connected Head / Tail light Change color / brightness / tempo –Acceleration –Proximity –Environmental Conditions

11 Connected Helmet IMU tracks head motion –Is the rider paying attention? –Have they looked back recently? Binaural alerts from speakers 11 IMU Speakers Electronics Pkg

12 Rumble Bar Virtual rumble strip inserts 12

13 What about the bike? 13 Faraday Electric BikeRideshare Commuter Bike

14 Questions / comments? Team Connor Brem, Computer Science (Junior) Spencer Barton, ECE (Junior) Chris Palmer, ECE (Research Programmer) Oliver Shih, ECE (Ph.D.) Ali Momeni, Art Department (Assistant Prof.) Bruno Sinopoli, ECE Department (Associate Prof.) 14
