- Hacking Copenhagen with the ‘bicycle-as-a-sensor’
Very few solutions currently exist that measure, account for and integrate cycling mobility into a city’s ITS ecosystem, yet cities cannot afford to lose bicycles as methods of urban transportation. Niccolò Panozzo, Development Officer at the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), says they are too efficient, sustainable and economically beneficial to individuals and societies, and explains how the ‘Hacking Copenhagen Demonstration’ project, led by the ECF, will show the full potential of connected cycling.
