Safer Roads Ottawa and the Ottawa Police Service have launched a new cyclist detection system on the O’Connor bike lanes at the corner of Waverley.

Safer Roads Ottawa engaged with SmartCone Technologies Incorporated, a local start-up company in Stittsville, to implement their innovative prototype sensor technology on O’Connor Street.

“Using an innovative approach, Safer Roads Ottawa and SmartCone customized and tested the prototype which involves using cameras, motion detectors, and programmable LED lighting,” said Rob Wilkinson, Coordinator of Safer Roads Ottawa.
