We’ve recently secured a small amount of innovation funding from the DfT’s Transport – Technology Research and Innovation Grant and that means that we’re in a position to add new features and functionality to Collideoscope.
Your chance to guide Collideoscope’s development
We’d like to hear your suggestions for new features on Collideoscope—or perhaps you’ve spotted something that could work better.
Please send your suggestions to email@example.com, or use the site’s contact form. We need them in by March 18th, so you have two weeks to gather your thoughts.
What Collideoscope already does
If you’re involved in a cycling collision or near miss—whether you’re the cyclist, a motorist or a pedestrian—you can report it on Collideoscope.
The site sends your report to the relevant local highways authority, and also publishes it online (where there’s the option to remain anonymous).
More than this, though, Collideoscope acts a repository for data on incidents and near misses. In time, anyone will be able to use that data to spot accident hotspots, and the places where accidents are waiting to happen.
This data is available to all, but is especially designed for councils, police forces, road planners, and healthcare providers in their efforts to conceive safer roads, more effective accident deterrents and better emergency care strategies.
And what we’re planning to do
We’ve already committed to a few developments. We’ll be:
- developing better reporting to local councils;
- working with the police to notify them of issues that might require their attention;
- releasing anonymised reports as open data within the next 12 months
…but we’re not planning on stopping there. Your ideas and opinions will guide further development and help us raise further funds for the site.
We thank you all in advance for your time!
