🥈Silver Award

Image  PEGASUS-1
Category 1. Intelligent, innovative Ebike
Title of Entry PEGASUS
Country Taiwan
Designer Chia-Yu, TSUI
Description There is a radar detection device on the car, mainly in bicycle riding, to continuously detect the position and speed of objects within a 10m fan-shaped range behind the rider. The detection data is transmitted to the rider’s mobile APP, and the APP will immediately send out which side is coming (rear left/rear right/radial) to protect both drivers. The hearing-impaired person can detect and identify the warning sound through the receiver installed in the car, and give a reminder through the APP. When it is necessary to let the other party know that there are special difficulties, (the horn has been honked many times…), the sign projected on the ground can also be selected as a reminder. The car body has an intimate function of an offset sensing device. Sometimes when riding, inevitably, you will not notice whether the body is off-center, which may cause the center of gravity to be unstable and fall, causing your safety problems (falling/being approached from behind by car collision) Therefore, when the car body detects the deviation of the center of gravity, it will automatically turn on the rear direction lights and flash the direction of deviation (left/right) to warn the cars behind to pay attention, and the mobile phone will also receive information reminders. The timing will disappear automatically, so it can also be used as normal direction light.

Title of Entry Ultimate QUIK Release Device
Country Taiwan
Designer Bruce LIU
Description Modern bicycle through axle has become a “Slow Release” in many ways. Nowadays, UCI mechanics rather switch a complete bike than simply replace a broken wheel during racing games. This is a reason why we come up with an ultimate “Quick Release” design through axle.Meet the ultimate QUIK release through axle device.  Just with a simple twist of the knob, you will be able to install or to remove the wheels from bicycle in seconds. The knob is always at locked position unless you want it to be unlocked, so the mechanism is super secure during all time. The QUIK knob is structured by a mechanism similar to a camera aperture plate so-called Iris diaphragm. The center diameter expands while the knob is being twisting until the axle is allowed passing through the center. The knob will shrink to its smallest diameter due to a spring motion.

Title of Entry ComBike
Country Taiwan
Designer Hsin-Chiao, CHAN
Description In Taiwan, going to the market and shopping for ingredients is part of our daily life, but when we go to the market, we often see people riding a motorcycle shopping for ingredients. It is dangerous to ride a motorcycle in a narrow passage full of people. The emission of exhaust gas not only makes everyone smog, but also causes air pollution. But it has a reason to ride a bike to buy ingredients. Walking for a long time with large bags is hard for some elderly people with limited mobility or lack of energy. In response to these problems, I designed ComBike. It is an electric bicycle combined with a cart. After the user rides it to the market, he parks the main body of the bicycle outside and only pulls the cart into the market, making grocery shopping more casual and easier.
