Design brief: Chaser is a game that uses Oslo Bysykkel as infrastructure, and a robust camera/gps device as sensors. The device needs to be permanently placed on a bicycle in a rugged enviroment.
Focus area: The project will investigate camera devices on bicycles, delicate electronics in rough environment. The project should also take in consideration the city bike itself: the brand, aesthetics, physical implementation, restrictions and trade-offs.
