A classic speed indicator (tacho) is over designed for city driving plus is not connected to any device.
What it does
Biketrax is a super simple tracker dongle that is permanently attached to the bike, so you never miss on tracking your city rides. It is powered by solar and/or the dynamo. It tracks speed, acceleration and gps, and transfers this data to your phone via Bluetooth in the end of your ride.
The data can additionally be used by government and/or companies to e.g. get info about road conditions, traffic on certain roads, paths..
Biketrax can also lead to a competition in between bikers.
How I built it
We are going to use arduinos and mobile apps, additionally a backend to save the data in the cloud.
