Mixed traffic situations, where motorists share the road with vulnerable road users, are
often very challenging for cyclists. The busy Tamaki Drive in Auckland, New Zealand, is
such a challenging environment and has already witnessed several cycle incidents over
the past few years, including fatalities and serious injuries. To prevent further incidents
from happening, Auckland Transport Authorities decided on a wide range of bicycle safety
measures, including the integration of a bicycle warning system, activated by thermal
imaging technology from FLIR Systems.
