Health Technology

What cyclist isn’t familiar with the problem, the threat of getting stuck in the tramrails when you are cycling through town? Maybe you even know somebody who crashed or had a near-miss? And why did nobody tackle this issue yet?

SafeRails focusses on developing a profile which can be implemented in existing tramrails’ gutters. The profile will support a parallel cycling bicycle wheel, however it will also let a tram wheel pas without hindrance by deforming elastically. The key-element in this innovation is its simplicity which makes it easy to produce in large lengths.

Idea owners: Roderick Buijs and Ward Kuiters are students at TU Delft.
