• Ford’s electric bicycle warns riders about potholes

  • Ford's-electric-bicycle-1
    It’s called the MoDe:Flex and it’s here to save many a life and limb of cyclists. The idea behind the working of this electric-assist bicycle is that it can efficiently warn cyclists of upcoming road craters and potholes, thanks to an inbuilt vibration system. The bike works with an Apple Watch app that synchronizes with the system to alert users of oncoming bumps. The company has not elaborated on how exactly the system works. There is a chance that the system may scan the road ahead by shooting out a SONAR like beam. In addition to the safety alarm the gear also serves in providing real-time information on weather, congestion, parking costs, time, traffic and alternate public transportation.


    Here looking forward to more from the company on the MoDe:Flex. What we can be assured of is that there are major brands taking a conscious effort to ensure the safety and wellbeing of cyclists.
