Light Lane by Altitude

29 Jan


“Bike lanes have proven to be an effective method of protecting cyclists on congested roads. One key is that the lane establishes a well defined boundary beyond the envelope of the bicycle, providing a greater margin of safety between the car and the cyclist. Yet, only a small fraction of streets have dedicated bike lanes, and with an installation cost of $5,000 to $50,000 per mile, we shouldn’t expect to find them everywhere anytime soon. Instead of adapting cycling to established bike lanes, the bike lane should adapt to the cyclists. This is the idea behind the LightLane. Our system projects a crisply defined virtual bike lane onto pavement, using a laser, providing the driver with a familiar boundary to avoid. With a wider margin of safety, bikers will regain their confidence to ride at night, making the bike a more viable commuting alternative.” – Altitude

    Where can we get the Light Lane? Can we switch colors (green etc?) Can we custom order a Light Lane with a symbol other than a bike sign?

    Interesting idea, this Light Lane!
    Where can we get more info about this new product?
    I’d like to know for instance how long the Light Lane works without recharging it, whether it also works in the daylight, how much it costs, how it is fixed on the bike or the biker, etc.
    Would you have a product description?
