Bicycle reflector design is constrained by a flat surface profile which dictates that reflectivity can only be achieved when the cyclist is approached directly from behind, thus compromising safety for variations in vehicle approach angles. Rooblee resolves this by creating an inner polyhedron profile which enables 360-degree reflectivity, and is enhanced by an outer profile that propagates light onto all reflective surfaces. This is complimented by a flexible mounting system which utilises the cyclist’s motion to oscillate the reflector. This captures the driver’s attention or promotes motion detection by autonomous vehicle guidance system.
