A bicycle with intelligence. This is what Jack Al-Kahwati had in mind when he came up with the idea for Velo-1 – an electric bike that can take instruction from a smartphone in order to control the gears, navigate the safest or quickest routes and share data via social networks. As traffic increases, roads become increasingly hazardous and it can be difficult, not to mention dangerous, for cyclists to make snap decisions about which route to take. The Velo-1 was developed with a cyclist’s mindset as paramount importance. It is meant to offer an intuitive approach to a cyclist’s journey through collecting data on the regularly used routes and using this data to inform future suggestions.
