Cyclists suffer a disproportionate share of serious injuries and fatalities, and indeed in recent years that disadvantage has been growing. At the same time they often are not treated equally by traffic systems (e.g. traffic signals frequently fail to register their approach or presence).
The XCYCLE project, funded by Horizon 2020, aimed to develop the means to equalise the treatment of cyclists in traffic and thus both encourage cycling and make cycling safer.
