Copenhagen has earned its reputation as one of the best cities in the world for cyclists. Q-Free
wants to take this positive biking experience one step further by inviting visitors to the ITS World Congress to become urban cyclists in a cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS).
By the help of innovative technology, the live demonstration allows participants to experience a range of practical Urban ITS scenarios. Visitors will use electric bikes and be guided through a city environment with the help of audio and visual information from tablets and wireless ear buds.
The tablets and headsets will provide interactive information of the traffic situations. Several simulated situations will show how to achieve safety and efficiency in an urban ITS mobility setting. Participants can choose between a short route (100 metres) or a longer two kilometre cycle and will score points depending on their traffic behaviour. A prize will be awarded each day to an urban cyclist. Wireless earbuds and helmets will be provided free of charge.
