BRISTOL, England — Bristol is the first city in the world to install CycleEye — an innovative cyclist sensor alert system designed by Bristol-based Fusion Processing, Business Leader reported.

Fitted to the side of a bus, a CycleEye unit uses radar and camera sensors to identify cyclists in potentially dangerous situations in close proximity to the bus and gives an audible alert to the driver’s cab. Bristol City Council will be funding a number of units on buses within the city, where cycling has more than doubled over the last 10 years. For the full story, click here.
