Enjoy biking

Flo's single most important goal is to make cycling more fun. We manage this by tackling the biggest frustration: the waiting for traffic lights.

In the flow

Thanks to Flo, cyclists catches the green light more often. This improves the flow in traffic.

Personal advice

Flo measures your speed and uses it to give you an advice. This way every cyclist receives a personal advice. This improves your chances to catch the green light!

Four symbols

There are four different symbols that Flo can show to you. Every symbol represents a specific advise to help you catch the green light.

Developed with experts

Flo has been developed in close collaboration with partners who have many years of experiences with complex traffic systems.

Universal solution

Flo can be placed on every intersection and on every existing traffic system, no matter the supplier.

bikeflo-how-it-works

1. Radar detection

The radar within Flo detects every individual cyclist 20 meters before Flo and measures their individual speed.

2. Connection with traffic system

Flo is connected with the traffic control system and therefore knows for how long the traffic light remains green.

3. Speed advise

Based on the measured speed and the data from the traffic control system, Flo gives a personal advice so you can catch the green light.

Biggest frustration: waiting

Flo is developed by Springlab, an innovation agency from Utrecht, the Netherlands. After conducting a large-scale research among cyclists in Utrecht, it turned out that the many waiting for traffic lights was the biggest frustration among the cyclists. Flo solves this by making sure cyclists catch the green light more often.

Pilot Light Companion

In November 2015 Springlab already tested the Light Companion. The national media showed up in big numbers and many Utrechters tested the innovation. Based on this pilot and the many learnings that came from it, Flo has been developed.
