    The Copenhagen Wheel

    The Copenhagen Wheel
    Gear  /  Bike


    MIT researchers will debut the Copenhagen Wheel - a revolutionary new bicycle wheel that not only boosts power, but can keep track of friends, fitness, smog and traffic. The Wheel can store energy every time the rider puts on the brakes, and then give that power back to provide a boost when riding uphill or to add a burst of speed in traffic. It also maps pollution levels, traffic congestion, and road conditions in real-time.
    SENSE and SUSTAINABILITY
    Controlled through your smart phone, the Copenhagen Wheel becomes a natural extension of your everyday life. You can use your phone to unlock and lock your bike, change gears and select how much the motor assists you. As you cycle, the wheels sensing unit is also capturing your effort level and information about your surroundings, including road conditions, carbon monoxide, NOx, noise, ambient temperature and relative humidity. Access this data through your phone or the web and use it to plan healthier bike routes, to achieve your exercise goals or to meet up with friends on the go. You can also share your data with friends, or with your city - anonymously if you wish thereby contributing to a fine-grained database of environmental information from which we can all benefit.
