Research bicycle with lidar

We have developed a research bicycle outfitted with a lidar (Ouster OS-1 32-channel). Lidar is able to continuously measure the riding environment in point cloud data from a moving bicycle.

This lidar bicycle allows us to study driver-bicyclist interactions in real-world roadways with continuous and accurate distance measurements from the bicycle to any nearby objects (e.g., surrounding vehicles).
