At  our City Science summit  in October 2020, the [bike]swarm team met with government officials, academics, and local bike advocates, to discuss the challenges of cycling in Guadalajara and the potential for the introduction of new technology to develop a safer riding ecosystem.

In collaboration with  UdeG (University of Guadalajara), IMEPLAN, the MiBici bike share system, and local bike advocacy groups, the [bike]swarm team will be conducting a pilot in late 2020 to observe user perception of the technology.
