Keeping bicyclists safe

A Syracuse University student is working on a phone app and navigation system that will keep bicyclists safer. According to this Syracuse.com article Mingtao Wu, a student at the L.C. Smith College of Engineering, has developed a system where users will link a smartphone app to a blinker system on the handlebars of the bike. Once they enter a destination in the app, as they approach a turn, a blinker is activated. The blinking light tells the rider that a turn is coming up but also warns drivers that the bicyclist is about to turn.
