ESNC Winners Take the Stage at European Space Expo

The Space Solutions for Biking: Empowering Smart 2-Wheels! event, as part of the official welcome reception at the European Space Solutions highlighted innovative applications powered by satellite navigation technologies that enhance the experience, increase the accessibility and safety of biking, and connect bikes to the Internet of Things. Two ESNC winners' prime examples showcased their pioneering services on stage.

Bike Citizen's application BikeCityGuide, ESNC regional winner 2012, is designed by bike couriers to cater for the needs of cyclists in cities. The bike app favours cycle paths and side streets and avoids busy main streets. It provides the best routing across the city to make cycling even more comfortable and fun - discover the city from a new perspective.

REALRIDER®, ESNC regional winner 2015, provides a motorcycle app that keeps riders safe and connected at the same time. REALRIDER® is the first 999 certified app in the UK that provides built-in lifesaving crash detection technology linked to the emergency services and thus offers riding with peace of mind and already secured funding of £1 million to scale up.
