Safer Cycling through Connectivity with the MAIN-ST System

Charles River Analytics developed the MAIN-ST system to improve bicycle safety by bringing cyclists onto the connected vehicle and infrastructure networks.

“Using a combination of commercially available hardware and custom software algorithms and processing methods, we can provide cyclists with multiple tiers of safety. This includes passive safety where the cyclists’ location and behaviors are transmitted to other connected vehicles and infrastructure, without the cyclist even knowing the technology is there; to active safety measures whereby additional hardware can be installed on the bicycle to inform cyclists to potential dangers via visual, audio, or haptic alerts, so they can make safer riding decisions,” said Dr. Jenkins.
