Cyclist warning demo

The Cyclear vehicle safety product from Innovative Safety Systems (ISS) is now being used in Coventry, where it was designed and built by Coventry University graduate and ISS director Gavin Thoday.

The system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists when a vehicle is turning left. The latest version has an optional sequencing sensor that alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching.

The system has been fitted to Coventry’s latest refuse vehicle built by Dennis Eagle.

ISS invited leading Coventry and Warwickshire figures to see the product in action as it was set to go into operation.

Jonathan Browning, chair of Coventry and Warwickshire’s local enterprise partnership, said: “It is particularly encouraging that the technology has been developed here. I am delighted ISS is now working with the council to improve safety for cyclists.”
