EXTRA! EXTRA! WHEEL (READ) ALL ABOUT IT! Urban commuters have a lot to deal with on a daily basis. There’s moon sized pot-holes to dodge. Pedestrians to not ride into. Traffic to watch out for. And of course, the magic trick of not being doored while cycling around parked cars. Then there’s air pollution. Whether you’re stuck behind traffic, or navigating around it, there’s always going to be air pollution coming out of those tail pipes. If only you could avoid air pollution with an app for either iOS or Android. Well now you can with the the help of Cowboy electric bikes.
Urban commuters can now pick the quickest and healthiest routes to their destination.
Cowboy electric bikes, based out of Belgian, is specifically designed with urban riders in mind
Cowboy electric bikes has teamed up with a company called Breezometer. This partnership has allowed Cowboy bikes to create a feature on their app that integrates air quality data, so that riders can avoid the most polluted routes.
This is brand new technology so it isn’t perfect, but we’re sure it will improve dramatically over time. For now, riders will have to go by estimated air pollution measures. Still, it’s backed by chief scientist, Dr. Gabriela Katz, who was previously at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
How does the App work?
Breezometer’s system uses measured data from more than 47,000 sensors worldwide that combines data from traffic, satellite imagery, smoke, wind, weather, algorithms, and machine learning. Everything technical, that urban commuters can benefit from even if they don’t really have an interest in them. Then again, urban commuters are a smart bunch, so they just might.
Basically, it measures air pollution coming out of those tail pipes lined up neatly in an inconvenient traffic jam. Us urban bicycle commuters now have another handy toy that might be beneficial to our daily commutes.
