English abstract:
Although cycling is a promising transport modality for the future,
cyclists could not substantially benefit from the safety gain in the
last decades. To improve cycling safety and convenience, as well as
extending the user base, we proposed to develop a self-balancing,
assisted, and connected bicycle that transfers several assistance
functions from the vehicle to the cycling domain. In this work-inprogress we sketch our vision of this bicycle, discuss some challenges for its development, and present early results. We present a
self-balancing function using reinforcement learning and current
progress in the development of a virtual reality motion bicycle simulator. If the progress in the projects continues as expected, we will report results from studies with human users soon.
