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.
