eBicycles With Vibrating Handlebars
The device is placed in a cradle on the bicycle's handlebars, out of reach from accidental swipes and safely secured so it doesn't fall out.
Both bicycles are e-bikes, offering electric, adjustable pedal assistance so the bicycle takes over if pedaling becomes too difficult. Each is equipped with a 200-watt motor with a 9-amp-hour battery providing pedal assistance for speeds up to 25 km/h.
The real main different between the two prototypes is the size. The MoDe:Me is very compact, while the MoDe:Pro is bigger and primarily aimed for urban commercial use, such as bike messengers.
For everything to work in sync, you will need the MoDe:Link smartphone app, allowing you to navigate location data and signal lights. My guess is the app would be available to most, if not all, device types.
