Ford’s Smart Jacket for Cyclists For Safer Cycling

A group of cycle-enthusiast employees at Ford have come up with a unique wearable smart jacket that enables riders to find their way around more easily, and to more clearly display their presence and intentions to others.

The smart jacket concept has sleeves that light up to show when wearers plan to turn right or left. Wirelessly connected to a smartphone, the jacket’s bike-friendly navigation app vibrates the appropriate sleeve, so riders know which way to go, using routes that avoid busy roads and junctions./fordeurope

And there is no need for cyclists to take their eyes off the road or their hands off the handlebars to consult a smartphone screen.

Audible and haptic interfaces enable riders to take calls, receive messages and repeat navigation guidance. The jacket also integrates a flashing brake light./fordeurope

The smart jacket concept ties our “Share The Road” campaign that aims to foster greater harmony and empathy between both drivers and cyclists. It also coincides with a week when cycling and technology take centre stage through Bike Week UK and London Tech Week 2018.
