Abstract

Recently, global warming is a serious problem all over the world. Japan endeavors to promote using bicycles in order to protect environment. We developed a system for supporting cyclists by using the data from a bike sensor network. Cyclists lose comfort of riding when they need to go through crowded streets. We collect riding information obtained with a gyro sensor attached to handlebars of a bicycle. Based on such information, we then extract riding condition of cyclists. This paper presents the design and implementation of a Human Probe system that can collect and store sensor data to show comfortable cycling routes on a map.
