New and innovative technology making it’s way onto the market is likely to revolutionize bicycle travel in urban areas with high volumes of traffic. The Buffalo Bicycle Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices point out these innovations could also one day be used to prevent collisions with motor vehicles and other pedestrians.

An article from Readwrite explains a company called Social Bicycles has launched a bicycle-sharing program. Each bike is equipped with a GPS system, wireless connectivity, and an onboard computer with Internet and mobile application access. This technology allows bikes to be located and used by consumers in a real-time manner at a fraction of the normal cost. The program has been successfully launched in Buffalo and four other cities in the region.

The technology goes further than just creating a more efficient way to share bicycles. With technology moving towards driverless vehicles that can electronically communicate with other vehicles and the infrastructure, these bicycles could communicate with other vehicles as well. This could help prevent accidents from occurring in the future.

William Mattar and his team of Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyers are excited about how technology is being used to prevent accident injuries. The firm is also anxious to see what new innovations are discovered to achieve this goal in the future.
