Cycle with sensors for the blind

Blind people can now ride a bicycle!

Scientists have developed a bicycle that uses ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles in the path — and it can help blind and partially sighted people live more independently. The UltraBike, created by Harrogate-based Sound Foresight Technology, allows people with sight loss to cycle. The bicycle has tactile buttons on each handlebar, which vibrate to let the rider know they are approaching a special barrier at the side of the specially-constructed track.
