Company Ford has presented an interesting development. The manufacturer has announced a smart jacket, which makes their owners much more noticeable in the traffic stream. Thus the company hopes to reduce the number of accidents that get cyclists and bikers.
According to The Verge, this development company has pushed a disappointing statistic. Thus, only in 2018 the roads of the United States killed more than 850 cyclists. In Europe this year killed 2 thousand people.
And while most cyclists and motorcyclists have reflective elements on clothing, the situation is not too much of an improvement.
That offers Ford
The company announced a jacket for cyclists and bikers, which is on the back of the led matrix. It is a makeshift display that can display a variety of Emoji and special icons, so the owners of two wheelers can give signals about a turn or emergency situation.
