A Bike that Peddles for You – Bicycles are getting smarter!
The car company Ford has introduced a smart electric bike which peddles for you in case you get a bit sweaty. So now you don’t have to arrive somewhere with a sweaty shirt and red face. There is a Smartphone App which calculates the heartbeat and gives instructions to the bike to take over the controls if things are getting hard for you. The smartphone app must be paired with the bike. The App also gives you up to date traffic information and navigate for you while calculating the total time it will take you to reach the destination. The bike even gives you a signal as it vibrates if a pothole is coming. The prototype of this folding bike was launched just months after the Mobile World Congress and is sure to be popular with city commuters who like to look smart on arrival to the workplace.
