Human/machine alliance to boost safer cities
Hotspot Map

Perception Poll

Description

CycleAI is enhancing urban planning and policies towards road safety in a more analytical, cost-efficient way.

Perception of risk impedes people from cycling. Based on our crowdsourcing models, we aim to build an automatized AI tool to estimate a score of perceived safety. Therefore, a road safety map for bycicle users will be affordably created for entire cities.

We are trying to empower cyclists in fighting for their own safety. It is all about community values; let's make our home a safer, greener, cleaner place. Feel free to participate and jump onboard this adventure. Next steps will be further announced.

Thank you!
