SEnsor for Bicycle’s impRoved Awareness (SEBRA) will identify the most relevant traffic safety related use-cases that involve bicycles. Then, a radar-based safety system for bicycles is developed with both sensors and human interface. Finally, the system is evaluated in relevant traffic situations. The research questions the project will investigate are:
• What safety issues can be addressed by a radar-based safety system mounted on bicycles?
• What performance requirements (field-of-view, computational capacity, power consumption, etc.) should such a system fulfil?
• How should the interaction with the bicyclists be designed to give a high level of safety and user experience?
Test time and resources at AstaZero has been granted to RISE Viktoria for activities associated with the SEBRA project through the OpenResearch@AZ program (https://azopenresearch.fluidreview.com/), project https://www.saferresearch.com/projects/active-safety-bicycles-using-radar-prevent-and-reduce-impact-car-and-bicycle-collisions.
