Cycling, and particularly the use of electric bikes, is becoming increasingly popular among older riders. However, this trend has also led to an alarming increase in accidents. Recently, Dutch police warned older cyclists of the dangers of switching to electric bikes after a large increase in the number of ebike deaths in that country, with nearly 90 percent of those killed aged 60 or above. Now, a consortium led by engineers at the University of Twente, aim to make riding an ebike safer with the development of an electric bicycle that can prevent elderly people from falling. The Smart Assistive Bicycle, dubbed SOFIE, is designed to increase stability.
