Bicycles in the Smart City

Dmitry Namiot, Vasily Kupriyanovsky, Oleg Karasev, Sergey Sinyagov, Andrey Dobrynin


In this article, we provide a review of tools for tracking movements of cyclists in smart cities. Mobility (Smart Mobility) is a major component of Smart Cities. Bicycles as transport component in the cities are on the rise worldwide. At least there, where the climate is at least minimally allows it. The reasons are quite obvious. This is the democracy and the availability of this type of vehicle, its cheapness, and environmental friendliness, promoting a healthy lifestyle. The development of this type of transport (like any other) has many different aspects. In this paper, we focus on the tracking of the movement of cyclists. That, naturally, will serve as a metric for any future design.
