Michael's research projects

Ferro Pedal: Bluetooth Switchable Magnetic Bicycle Pedal

A pedal that behaves like a clip-less pedal, and can then be switched to a platform pedal on-the-fly, could prove to be a game-changing tool to mountain bikers across a range of disciplines. Our method of accomplishing this is with a Bluetooth switchable magnetic bicycle pedal.
