INNOVATIVE CYCLE jacket Visijax has been launched by British company Li & Co. With RoSPA research indicating that turning in front of fast moving vehicles as one of the most dangerous times for a cyclist, Visijax has a potential solution in its ‘Intelligent Motion-Activated Signalling System’ (iMASS) which is ‘implanted’ in the Visijax jacket. The device detects movement so when a cyclist raises their arm to indicate, an amber flashing signal automatically comes on. The signal remains on for around five seconds after a cyclist has put down their arm to allow sufficient time for them to turn. 23 integrated high intensity LED lights are arranged
