Smartphone-based Connected Bicycle Prototype Development for Sustainable Multimodal Transportation System

The project’s goal is to develop a proof of concept prototype connected bicycle and demonstrate that the technology works and can provide a connection between a bicycle and the road environment. The specific objectives are to: (1) Conduct a comprehensive literature review regarding peer techniques of connected bicycle and transferrable techniques from connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles. (2) Identify critical information (i.e., position, acceleration/declaration, direction, speed, etc.) and system configuration requirements (i.e., wireless bandwidth, global positioning system (GPS) resolution, tactile and/or acoustic warning system, etc.) for B2X (bicycle-to-everything) communication in a sustainable multimodal transportation system. (3) Identify and/or develop the information transmission mechanism for B2X communication in a sustainable multimodal transportation system; and (4) Develop a proof-of-concept prototype for a smartphone-based connected bicycle using identified hardware (i.e., sensor, transmitter, smartphone, bicycle anti-theft system, etc.) and software (i.e., smartphone system configuration, mobile application and user interface, etc.) components.
