Cycling Industries Europe’s network keeps growing fast. This month, January 2022, we are glad to welcome onboard four new members!
Mobiel 21 has extensive expertise in sustainable mobility. Aiming for a behavioural change and a more sustainable transport system, they promote projects and campaigns to a wide range of people, from elderly to children and everyday commuters.
On a more tech-related side, have you ever heard of Vehicle to Everything (V2X)? V2X regards the communication between a vehicle and any other entity on the road, and Autotalks is a V2X chipset market pioneer. We are glad to have them onboard!
Join us also in welcoming Onsee, a hardware and cycling data company focused on road safety and community-driven mobility planning, and Hövding, an award-winning and innovative airbag helmet to keep cyclists safe on their journeys.
Find out more about our new members below and get inspired and find out reasons why you should join CIE too! More details about joining can be found here.
Mobiel 21 is an NGO for sustainable mobility. A multidisciplinary team of 21 people helps to build a living environment that is accessible and liveable in an eco-friendly and safe way.

Mobiel 21 raises awareness and encourages behavioural change through research and by informing, educating and encouraging social action among several target groups. Mobiel 21 has more than 20 years of experience in local, national and European projects, both as coordinator and project partner. Influencing mobility behaviour is at the core of the NGO. Mobiel 21 uses applied research to feed its creative campaign concepts and project ideas, analyses their impact thoroughly and makes relevant policy recommendations. Through a wide range of methods, campaigns, pilots and concepts, they reach a wide array of target groups such as the elderly, children, youth, commuters, companies, immigrants, citizens etc.
Autotalks, a V2X chipset market pioneer and leader, helps in reducing collisions on roadways and improve mobility with its automotive qualified chipsets. The company’s chipsets offer the most advanced, truly secure and highest performing global V2X communication solution. Autotalks’ advanced technology, to be mass deployed in the coming years, complements the information coming from other sensors, specifically in non-line-of-sight scenarios, rough weather, or poor lighting conditions. It significantly improves overall road safety, effectively coordinating vehicles, self-driving cars, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. Autotalks recently launched ZooZ, a V2X solution tailored specifically for cyclists, allowing drivers to be more aware of their presence on the road from Day 1.
Onsee is a hardware and cycling data company on a mission to bring joy to cycling journeys.
Onsee products help cyclists show us where they feel unsafe so we get the right people to fix it.
For example, their Smart Bike Camera-light saves instant replays of scary moments with data overlays using smart sensors or by clicking a handlebar button. With their app you can report incidents to authorities and share information with the community to plan safer routes and get tailored safety tips.
Onsee platform's safety experts and algorithms investigate every incident, giving transport professionals fast, easy-to-understand near-live maps and tools to fix cyclist issues.
Hövding started out in 2005 as a master’s thesis by the two founders Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, who, at the time, were studying Industrial Design at the University of Lund.
The project resulted in the concept of an airbag helmet, which won Innovationsbron’s Ideas Grant. This kick-started the process of developing Hövding into a real product. In 2006 Hövding won the Venture Cup, after which Hövding Sweden AB was founded.
Over the years Hövding has grown from just two people with a great idea, to a NASDAQ-listed company that handles everything from development and production to marketing and sales. Today Hövding consists of a team of around 35 people, all triggered by the word impossible, and Hövding’s airbag for cyclists is available in 16 markets across Europe.Share on Linkedin Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Subscribe to our newsletter
