‘SIGNEL’ (electroluminescent Signaling Glove for Urban Cycling) integrates an electroluminescent (EL) lighting area that follows the physiognomy of the hand. It clearly communicates a left and right turn signal in the context of roadway traffic. A textile switch placed on the forefinger sends an electrical signal to the EL driver to activate a flashing turn signal. The industry cooperation provided by SEFAR AG and GRANQVIST AB was essential to bring functionality and aesthetics into a working prototype that is highly visible and energy efficient.
