The Smart Glove

A cycling glove that allows riders to indicate a change of direction by 'flicking' their hand. The glove has a built in 3D accelerometer which communicates with a microchip also built into the glove.

If the cyclist provides the correct hand gesture when the arm is extended a set of flashing led's is activated on the side of the hand. This flashing light indicates to other road users of the cyclists intentions to turn. When the rider places his hand back on the handlebars the system is deactivated. A working prototype has been developed as shown in the demo reel. To see more about the product please download the pdf document below.
