CES 2015: Connected Cycle Will Track Down Bike Thieves
High-technology pedals advantageous to traditional bikes, allows cyclists to track whereabouts of their ride via smartphone
While there are innumerable perks of cycling, theft is also a prevalent consequence of riding in a bike-centric city. Connected devices, such as smartphones and laptops embedded with locators, have made it more plausible to retrieve lost or stolen items, however, a bike lock does not necessarily equate bike safety.
Connected Cycle is a new high-tech bike pedal that instantly notifies its owner if their ride has been moved. The detachable technology is embedded with miniature GPS and GPRS chips that are powered by cycling, allowing it to be located at anytime.
