Having experienced strong growth over the last 10 years, bicycles have become the mode of transport behind numerous accidents.
In towns, the increase in the number of cyclists has led to a need for problematic and potentially accident-prone intersections to be managed.
86% of cycling accidents occur in urban areas (source: roulons-autrement.com).
Intersections are particularly accident-heavy zones due to a lack of visibility. It is necessary to inform drivers of the presence of cyclists up ahead, especially at night.
Cyclists are detected ahead of intersections using a thermal camera.
Conditional activation of the sign attracts drivers’ attention, which then makes them more vigilant.
