About This Project

Bikelite is an app which seeks to reduce cyclists’ accidents through the generation of digital safe cycloways updated in real-time by the cyclist community.

Bikelite offers the safest route for cyclists, using an algorithm which prioritizes cycloways and low speed streets, complementing it with information provided by the community, prioritizing well-paved streets, with less potholes and dangerous corners.

Additionally, Bikelite will have a Bluetooth connection with a glove which will indicate the way to go, as well as the information about the route the user is taking.

The app is currently being developed for Android, implementing the backend developed on Ruby on Rails and integrating on-line mapbox mapping provider.
