Displayed at the COP15 Climate Change Conference, the Copenhagen Wheel by MIT students is a smart wheel that integrating a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS), sensors and a smart lock takes bicycle wheel technology to the next level. Marking the advent of “Biking 2.0,” the KERS system produces energy as soon as the rider uses the break, which is further stored in the wheel for future use. While onboard sensors keep an eye on the speed of the bike, covered distance, direction, pollution levels and proximity of friends on the road via Bluetooth connection to the rider’s iPhone that smartly mounts on the handlebars for easy access. If someone tries to steal the bike, the built-in smart lock sends a text message to users and ensures safety. Check out the video after the jump.
