Paul introduced me to Brent to see if there might be some areas of
collaboration. Brent will correct me if I misrepresent what they are
doing but my understanding is they are creating a cloud based system
where motorcyclists and bicyclists make their presence known to
drivers. Both are running client apps which figure out their location
and trajectory to provide warnings to drivers. In addition to cloud+app
based, Ridar is working on DSRC/C-V2x based solutions. Having both are
there will be mix of vehicle capabilities for a considerable number of
years makes sense.

To me as a bicyclist and previous motorcyclist who understands too well
that drivers often do not see riders, this is a worthy endeavor. For
our group specifically what came to mind is this is an excellent use
case for an app that could be running on vehicles, sending its
anonymized trajectory to their cloud service in addition to V2x
broadcasts. The notifications solution following the same model as ViWi
that VW mentioned to us in the past could handle the push notifications
to alert driver of upcoming cyclists.
