Bike tracking system in bike water bottle holder with dead man alert

By Jecrespo Enrique Crespo

Security for bike riders is a must, with road bike or mountain bike accidents happens and as soon as possible, emergency personnel must locate you. Thanks to the large coverage of sigfox network in Spain and an Arduino MKRFOX1200 with an IMU MPU-9250 (https://www.invensense.com/products/motion-tracking/9-axis/mpu-9250/) can monitor the biker and in case the bike falls and it's on the ground for more than 5 minutes without movement, the devide sends and alarm.

 

The device is placed in the base of the bike bottle holder.

 

Also, this device could be used for tracking your bike rides or be tracked by your family or friends or in case your bike is stolen, the bike will be located in a short time. As an anti-theft device could be hidden inside the bike frame.

 

Another application for this device could be for participants tracking in bike competitions with both features security and live tracking for organizers. 

 

Additionally, with a low energy bluetooth, this device could be controlled by a smartphone and add more features. For example send your location to your bike group to know how far you are.
