About this project
FAST is a tailor-made smart taillight for cyclists. It can be fixed at the back end of the bicycle. There are some smart features for bicycle.Really, we hope FAST will bring you a safer, smarter and more awesome cycling experience.
Cycling is not a risk-free activity. Accidents may occur at any moment. With acceleration sensor and motion status tracking, we can ensure that you will get immediate help when emergency occurs. Firstly, a great collision or sharp turns will change the lighting mode into SOS mode so that you can be spotted in the dark. Meanwhile, FAST will update and forward status info in the taillight to your emergency contact, letting them know that there is an emergency and you need their help. To trigger SOS function, users need to input emergency contact’s info into the FAST app.
When ISO-Auto function is activated, the photosensitive sensor will detect its surroundings. Once the bike enters a dim place, FAST will automatically light up.
Anti-theft alarms are a big headache. You may want to buy some stuff or grab a cup of Starbucks coffee. With our design, you don’t have to lock your bike. By pressing the “Lock” button on the FAST app, you can park your bike without any worries. Its Bluetooth and Acceleration sensor can get your mobile phone connected. If anyone tries to steal your bike, FAST will give you an Alarm Sound.
In a matter of fact, FAST taillight integrates a alarm. Your tail light and mobile phone's alarm will sound when someone tries to move your bike.
Conventional taillights too boring? Here comes with the entertaining customized full-color LEDs. There are 8 RGB LED light bulbs on the taillight. You can choose your favorite color and pattern through the FAST app! One thing worthy of mention is that FAST has a Morse Code mode. You can put in your name, your girlfriend’s name or your pet’s name and the FAST can turn it into Morse Code mode and let it shine. How splendid it that? Note: Even if you are in countries where the law dictates a taillight must be red, you can only customize with colors the government allows.
Some patterns of FAST.
A simple and easy user experience was our aim. FAST's app interface is the demonstration of our efforts. You can preview the flashing mode, check your movement status, and set control parameters all with just a click in the app.
FAST APP feature :
- Check your light battery & color and luminance information.
- Turn down/off Auto ISO & Alarm sound & Low battery notification & Emergency communication
- Activate Anti-theft with app
- Customize the flash pattern, color and luminance of the light
- Set special application scenarios, such as A cute night-light
- App & Firmware update
FAST App supports realtime location sharing, you can startup or join in team riding activities via two-dimensional code (QR code). After that, you can check your teammates’ location informations and riding statements. Once anybody encounters an accident, the App will notice you by turn the color of the teammate on the app into red.
With the FAST App, you can turn on the tracking log function which will record your realtime motion trail and calculate your riding time, average speed, calories, etc. You can also save these data & motion trail and share into Facebook, Twitter, wechat, etc.
How do you fix the FAST taillight firmly to the back end of your bike? This is a tough issue. However we’ve solved this problem, as FAST can be fixed firmly on your bike with carapace, and it can be fixed on all types of bikes too.
With optical coating and a geometric surface, FAST still stands out even when the light is off. In order to protect the electric parts inside, we sealed all the gaps with rubber to make FAST waterproof and dust-protected.
There's a button on the FAST tail light, you can control the FAST via the button. The same with the traditional tail light, you can switch the woking pattern of the tail light with the button.
FAST taillight integrates 8 PCS 16-million color LED light bulbs, with Bluetooth Low Energy technology, support OTA (Over The Air). And all with the rechargeable lithium polymer supporting the Micro USB charging port. It's very environmentally friendly and extremely convenient.
Three versions of FAST taillights are at the same price，At the end of the campaign, you can choose GREEN , SILVER or BLACK.
We are a group of engineers who are passionate about smart hardware and enjoy cycling. FAST is a cool product that we created with our team which includes an electronic engineer, a software engineer, a mechanical engineer, an ID designer and a marketing manager.
Let FAST be your cute night-light. This is not impossible! We extend this function on the taillight together with alarm clock. Users can set the alarm clock and when time is up, the FAST app will activate the taillight to shine. Think about it - you set the alarm clock and when the set time is up, the gradual ringing of alarming and the shining taillight activate… wouldn’t that be fantastic?
We hope to engage more cycling lovers by putting this project on Kickstarter. We need your feedback and support. If you like this project, please share it with your friends or family members. As long as we can succeed, we will provide a better cycling experience for cycling lovers.
Risks and challenges
We have tested our structure design to ensure product stability. By optimizing power consumption and user interface, we are confident that FAST will meet and possibly even exceed your expectations. After one year of demo design refinement, we are ready to move on to trial production. With your support, we will conquer potential problems ahead with full confidence.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
