Autotalks in Israel is launching a V2X communications systems that is ready for integration into cyclists and e-scooters.

75% of bike and scooter accidents are caused by drivers not noticing cyclists, so the ZooZ3 module sits on handlebars to provide V2X data to and from other vehicles and roadside units to boost safety.

The V2X unit uses the Autotalks TEKTON3-BIKE third generation System on Chip (SoC) for bike manufacturers wanting collision prevention technology. The ZooZ3 module has built-in V2X firmware specifically dedicated to micromobility safety use cases such as “Intersection Collision Warning” (ICW) and “Rear Collision Warning” (RCW). The module has customization and expansion capabilities, comprehensive security, and global compatibility.

Building on the foundation of the TEKTON3-BIKE chipset, Autotalks is introducing a 3rd generation V2X bicycle safety device designed for effortless installation on handlebars. ZooZ3 functions as a reference platform for micromobility, targeting large-scale pilots, and promptly alerting cyclists when they are in danger.

The module brings V2X capabilities to any bicycle or scooter and taps into the Autotalks ZooZ App for smartphones. Cyclists will be able to receive real-time alerts from the bike system on their screens, enabling them to respond swiftly to potential road hazards.

The app user-friendly interface can serve as a model for safety user interfaces for bike computers. The V2X functionality itself is not intended for smartphones, but rather for specialized cycling devices equipped with the necessary hardware and software.

“We are delighted to introduce our solutions for micromobility based on our 3rd generation chipset,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks. “The vision of zero accidents can only be achieved by safeguarding cyclists and other vulnerable road users. This is why we have dedicated ourselves to integrating them into the V2X network and developed this integration-ready product line, which meets all the needs of cyclists at an attractive price point, ensuring that every cyclist can benefit from this superior protection on the road.”
