Cambridge Consultants is one of the UK’s pre-eminent wireless innovators. The firm has been pushing the Internet of Things for many years, but now more than ever, the concept is leaving the lab and entering our daily lives.
This bicycle has an electronic gear system which Cambridge Consultants has wirelessly linked the gears to both manual controls and a smartphone application mounted on the handlebars, along with information from sensors measuring cadence and wheel speed.
This means it can make automatic gear changes under the instruction of the phone, instructions that can cater for both the professional athlete and potentially the leisure cyclist.
Fancy stuff, but the real value says Cambridge Consultants, is that the basic premise of combining sensing, control, algorithms and connectivity can be used in countless applications working in countless industries – a world where almost every device is really smart stuff.
