About

CycloShield is a comprehensive electronic system for passive safety, which helps commuters and sportspeople to have a safer experience on the road.

Equipped with a set of sensors that allows detection of accidents and falls, CycloShield is able to autonomously detect the approach or threat of another vehicle and perform actions about it.

 

 

 

In the event of an accident it can contact your “In Case of Emergency” person and the local emergency service with your gps location . It is completely autonomous.

This emergency call system vastly reduces the emergency services response time, enabling an almost immediate response to incidents on the road.

CycloShield is the only autonomous device on the market that capture infractions by filming offenders.

CycloShield collects data and learns using machine learning, notifying you of dangerous roads and can make suggestions regarding safer times and roads to cycle.

CycloShield is also focused on monitoring your sport activity, recording training sessions and improvements of your performance. You can view the data on your phone or download to your computer via the integrated bluetooth and wifi.

CycloShield is compatible with the majority of activity monitors and mobile applications on the market.

 

Cyclists are the most vulnerable group on the road, this is well known. Rapid response to an incident can mean the difference between survival and a fatality.

CycloShield detects accident and is made to last. If the user is unconscious or unable to respond in time in the event of an accident, the device will send an SOS alert to the emergency system reporting your last known GPS coordinates.

The numbers show that is 17 times more likely to die in an accident for a cyclist than for a car driver.

It can detect lawbreakers and record them in video, you will love this. Disrespectful drivers will hate it. We all love video.

Just install the latch to your seatpost, the device can be attached to it with ease and it is equally quick and easy to remove for when you are far from the bike.

Depending on the stretch goals reached, the device will get hardware improvements but even without that boost, it will pack at least:

  • MultiCore CPU 
  • 512MB of RAM 
  • Docking station (subject to stretch goal fulfilment) 
  • Proximity sensors 
  • Camera 5Mpx
  • High capacity battery 
  • Integrated WiFi 
  • Bluetooth
  • USB
  • LED lights

Remember that you are looking at a prototype right now, the final product will be smaller and lighter, to fit better the requirements of cyclists. You will get:

  • A CycloShield 
  • The charger for the battery 
  • An instructions manual 
  • A pack of stickers 
  • Our official maillot, cycle in style 
  • MicroUSB cable to connect the device to your computer

Risks and challenges

Hardware based products are hard, many pieces and many providers, we have done our best to estimate costs of mass production but there is a risk of prices going up while the campaign is active.

We are an small startup and we lack enough resources yet to battle test the device for different accident conditions, given the nature of the CycloShield, we aim to make it impact resistant, this is one of our main challenges for the future.

We will keep our backers and friends updated with all the latest and our offices will be open for all of you, so come and meet us. Our commitment is to deliver and comply with expectations.
