This bicycle light uses AI to keep you safe from bad drivers from Mashable

There is a new AI tool that is designed to help keep cyclists safer as they navigate busy roadways. Velo’s AI-based bike safety light “Copilot” (not to be confused with Microsoft’s generative AI assistant) aims to do exactly that, as spotted by Ars Technica.

This little $400 gadget can allegedly tell you (via audio) if a vehicle is approaching or overtaking you, warn drivers who are coming on to you too quickly, and even record HD video in case you need it later.

It’s got about five hours of battery life, per Ars Technica, but that should be fine for city cyclists, at least.

After the last few years of advances in car-based digital identification and warning systems, it’s nice to see something for those who prefer to get around in a more environmentally friendly way.

The gadget is listed for sale now on the Velo website.
