App-Controlled Bike Can Call For Emergency Help
The Xkuty One is an electric bike that uses an iPhone as its dashboard and can alert pre-set contacts if it senses that the rider has crashed.
The Xkuty One electric bike has full iPhone integration, using it as the dashboard to track speed and monitor the battery life. It has been developed by the Spanish transport firm The Electric Mobility Company.
Dezeen notes that riders can use the accompanying app to set different parameters and view the bike’s speed and battery life. It can also call a pre-set emergency contact if it senses that the rider has crashed. It does this by monitoring orientation and angular momentum using the iPhone’s gyroscope.
The Xkuty One can travel at speeds of 35 kmph and there are hydraulic brakes on the front and back. The bike is available in a range of colors for the seat and grips, with matching helmets for safety. It is priced at €2800, with a waiting list on the company’s website.
