CamBike have produced a low cost sensor for cyclists in the city

A new sensor aimed at measuring the quality of the local environment for cyclists has been developed in Cambridge.

CamBike’s sensor team of 10 rolled out data gathered from around 20 volunteers at a one-day conference at Fitzwilliam College on Friday.

Johanna Kölbel, part of the CamBike sensor team, said: “Our low-cost, bike-mountable sensor hub measures the quality of cyclists’ local environment, including their exposure to pollutants and the state of the roads on which they are cycling.

“We designed a sensor system that can be understood, built, and used by cyclists to collect data of scientific interest, and to which anyone can contribute insights and ideas.”
