Bicycle detection and classification in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is consistently recognized as one of the top five bicycle-friendly cities in North America. The city is host to the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota as well as many other universities, and numerous high-tech startups. The city’s traffic division is taking a proactive approach in dealing with bicycle traffic in the city, knowing that a cyclist could sit at an intersection undetected, waiting for a car to approach to activate the signal.
