Velumo

The Velumo project consists of an "intelligent rear light". This light can have different functions:

  • a warning system when someone is trying to steal your bike
  • a system to light-up when you are looking for your bike
  • a tracking system, thanks to built-in electronics
  • a breaking light

All these functionalities can be controlled by an app on your smartphone
