Dublin Cycle Buddy Beta helps make your cycle rides around Dublin safer and more enjoyable! Built using a new community-powered cycling navigation engine, the Cycle Buddy will find safe, bike-friendly routes for your commuting and recreational rides. The Cycle Buddy's voice turn-by-turn navigation will then guide you along the routes, alerting you about possible dangers along the route . It utilises large data sets, including GPS trajectories and crowdsourced issue reports, with a data engine that analyses the collected data to produce these optimised routes.
The solution will give cyclists peace of mind when planning their commutes, knowing full well that they are getting the best selection of cycling-optimized routes available. This will help both inexperienced cyclists to choose the safest routes possible while allowing the more experienced cyclists to choose an optimized route with travel-time and bike-friendliness trade-off that best suits their preferences.
Additionally, the collection of data from cycling routes will help the city council’s planning department determine which ‘non official’ routes that cyclists are organically taking, in order to improve cycling infrastructure in these key locations.
This is Phase 1 - for advanced users, to collect feedback from experienced cyclists so that we can capture comments/feedback for new cyclists to feel more comfortable with existing routes in Dublin, before deciding to get on a bike.
This will subsequently feed into Phase 2 - where actual candidates looking to start cycling will be able to log into v2.0 of the app, which has been populated with your feedback in Phase 1.
As one of the data sources, Dublin Cycling Buddy uses OpenStreetMap maps, a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world based on the Open Database License.
Routes have information purposes only. Due to road works, current traffic, weather, and other events the real conditions on the route can differ from those suggested by the application. Use your judgment, be careful and follow road signs and other warnings. It is completely your responsibility that you follow traffic rules and ride safe.
