Take a virtual ride with city cyclists geared up with high-tech data collection devices to get a true sense of getting from A to B by bike.
Veloscape: a Curating Cities project designed a data collection tool, the SenseScape device, that gathers geo-location, environmental, biometric and motion data, takes photos at regular intervals and records a cyclist’s vocal commentary as they ride.
During Feral Experimental, the Veloscape team is conducting two workshops with small groups of experienced cyclists as a means to explore the capabilities of the device.
The rides will reflect a spectrum of urban cycling scenarios. As a group the participants will be shown an animated map of a short segment of each of their rides with the full set of data streams on view/audible, and will collectively interpret the data.
