Qhov no xyuas tau ua nrog ib tug thaum ntxov-theem tsab ntawm tus Beeline, powered los ntawm ib tug Arduino board. Qhov kawg hardware thiab app vim nkoj nyob rau hauv Lub yim hli ntuj 2016 yuav zoo sib txawv.

Lub Beeline yog ib lub voj voog navigation ntaus ntawv uas dumps koj li ib txwm tig-los-tig qhia rau ib tug xub uas ib txwm ntsiab lus koj nyob rau hauv txoj cai coj.

Launched raws li ib tug Kickstarter phiaj los nqis tes, Beeline tsis yog ib tug tig-los-tig GPS ntaus ntawv raws li koj xav muaj nyob rau hauv ib lub tsheb, es tsis txhob nws tsuas qhia tau hais tias cov kev taw qhia ntawm koj kawg lo lus uas peb. Nws muab rau koj ntau txoj kev ywj pheej kom muaj kev siv koj nouse. Nws creators hu nws "fuzzy navigation".

Lub tswvyim yog yooj yim. Lub Beeline yuav siv koj cov smartphone ua feem ntau ntawm cov hnyav lifting: koj ntsaws koj kawg lo lus uas peb mus rau hauv lub, thiab cov kev taw qhia thiab cov nyob deb no ces qhia rau cov Beeline ntaus strapped rau koj handlebars.

Qhov kawg app yuav tau txhawb Waypoints, uas ntau saj zawg zog routing ntawm koj nyiam kas fes kav. Lub app kuv muab rau ib tug tig yuav tsuas taw tes rau kuv nyob rau hauv cov kev taw qhia ntawm ib tug tib lo lus uas peb.

Kev lom zem thiab tsawg stressful tshaj tig-los-tig

Tus ntaus ntawv yog ib tug me me dub Puck, sib txuas lus nrog rau cov xov tooj siv Bluetooth. Nws Straps ib ncig ntawm lub handlebars, thiab muaj ib tug me me ncig e-daim ntawv zaub los qhia cov kev taw qhia thiab deb li cas los koj lo lus uas peb.

Siv nws yog ntau npaum li cas kev lom zem tshaj ib tug ib txwm tig-los-tig GPS ntaus ntawv; lawv yuav ua tau dog dig ntxhov siab rau lub tsheb tuam, thiab yuav pab tau txoj kev ntawm tshwj xeeb yog voj voog-unsympathetic txoj kev. Lawv nyob nraum efficiency, tsis kawm.

Los tsuas taw nyob rau ntawm koj kawg lo lus uas peb, lub Beeline imparts ib tug nkag siab ntawm txoj kev ywj pheej. Nws pom tau tias nyob txaus yog li ntawd koj yuav tsis tau mus nyob rau hauv lub yuam kev rau ntev. Muaj tsis yog hais tias kev txiav txim zoo ntawm txhawj koj tej zaum xav tias thaum navigating siv ib tug GPS tsheb tuam computer. Ib tug sab kev pab ntawm tsuas qhia cov kev taw qhia yog hais tias nws yuam nej kom rov koom nrog koj ncig, thiab muab rau koj ib tug muaj zog kev txiav txim zoo ntawm qhov chaw.

Muaj tsis ntau turnings nrog ib tug tig-los-tig cycling computer, Kuv tau attest rau nws ua ib tug mob. Lawv feem ntau siv ib pliag kom paub txog koj nyob nraum tawm kawm thiab ces hais kom koj los txheeb peev rau lawv. Thaum koj twb txiav txim siab los ua li ntawd, koj twb feem ntau tsis qhov zoo tshaj plaws Reroute ua rau ib lub voj voog uas siv ceev xwmphem, tos rau nws yuav caum cuag, ces tau mus dua. Nws yog ua tau txawv txawv.

Ib tug zoo nam ntawm tus kho vajtse yog nws loj (ib zaug nws ships - nyob rau ntawm lub sij hawm ntawd nws yog ib tug MacGyver zoo li creation uas ib tug Arduino thiab ib tug USB roj teeb). Nws yog me me txaus khaws cia nyob rau hauv lub hnab tshos, lub hnab los yog ib tug saddlebag. Nws yuav ib tug ntaus koj xav tej zaum yuav tau siv li koj lub smartphone rau navigation vim hais tias kom koj tus xov tooj screen rau tua nws cov roj teeb.

Attaching nws thiab detaching nws yog ib qho yooj yim raws li yog tsis muaj bracket tseg. Cov tsab yog nyob rau ntawm ib tug txhav roj hmab band uas kev cob cog rua lub Beeline rau nws hau. Lub ob clipped rau hauv txhua lwm yam los tuav nws nyob rau hauv handlebars. Nws muaj OK, tab sis yuav ua li cas kev cai zoo raws li nws yog ib tug me ntsis xoob. Lub hau yuav flipped rau screen rau thauj nyob rau hauv ib lub hnab los yog lub hnab tshos.

Nqe

Lub Beeline yog tam sim no muaj nyob rau hauv Kickstarter rau £ 45, thiab yuav tsum nkoj nyob rau hauv lub yim hli ntuj 2016. Ib tug zaum kawg lub khw muag khoom version yuav tsum raug nqi ib ncig ntawm £ 60.

Kev txiav txim

Nws yog tseeb tias yog ib tug kis rau uas tsis yog-GPS tsav routing qhov twg kev tshawb kawm thiab paub txog yam tseem ceeb tshaj ntau npaum txoj kev. Txawm nyob rau hauv nws tsab xeev, lub Beeline yog kev lom zem rau siv, and I found it less stressful to use than a traditional turn-by-turn system.

The concept is sound for those that ride in cities and know roughly where they’re going, or want more flexibility en route. We’ll see what the hardware looks like once the device has shipped in August.

Pros: me me, teeb, easy to attach, more riding freedom, no re-routing delays, good battery life because of the e-paper screen (nyob rau hauv kev tshawb xav)

Cons: requires using your head rather than blindly following directions, may not take the most efficient route, backing anything on crowdfunding is a risk
