    Abstract

    Cycling is perceived as unsafe by a large amount of people, however, there is a lack of useful data representing the real conditions that cyclists encounter on the roads.
    Road safety is often represented by the number of fatal or near-fatal accidents in a particular location, however, by using sensory data we can identify a dangerous or questionably appropriate section of road without relying on injuries and deaths.
    Aggregated data can provide councils and charities with an empirical view of the conditions cyclists experience and also giving an insight on the effectiveness of infrastructure improvements.
    This project explores the possibility of creating a service; comprising of a data acquisition device and supporting data server, which will support the above concept. The key components and processes will be discussed and documented, reaching an evaluation and conclusion on the topic and a thought about the future for this idea.
