Mobility Experiment: Info Cycle, Palo Alto, California

Fact Sheet: Info Cycle

Engineers are working to develop sensor kits based on Ford OpenXC that gather information from bicycles and other common forms of transportation in urban areas. The devices gather data such as wheel speed, acceleration and altitude, among other information. The data could provide insight into how alternate modes of transportation might be best positioned to serve future urban mobility needs.

The Experiment
Develop sensor kits for bicycles to gather information about how bikes are used today to meet existing urban transportation needs.
