This is the first iteration of the bike safety jacket I'm designing. It is composed of 4 features:
1- 2 tilt sensors on each arm to sense the right of left motioning of arms and flash lights indicating right or left.
2- An accelerometer to sense the deceleration of the cyclist and flash a red warning light on the back of the jacket.
3- An infrared sensor to left side of the cyclist to sense if any vehicles or other cyclists are getting too close and set off a small vibrating motor to warn the cyclist.
4- Kinetic energy produced from the pedaling of the bike, harnessed by a motor installed on the back wheel, and converted into electrical energy used to power the bike and/or charge the cyclist's phone.
Feedback on how to refine and perfect the final product is appreciated!
