Every day in the United States there exists a conflict between motorists and cyclists on the road.  Although Share the Road campaigns have become more commonplace, many motorists still don’t see cycling as a road-  legal endeavor.  Conflict capture seeks to document and explore the nature of human reaction to being behind cyclists in traffic.  Awareness of this conflict becomes more important every day with many people choosing bicycles as an alternate form of transportation.

The hidden camera takes discrete photographs of motorists in their vehicles as they come in range of the device.  A small on board computer takes the photos and pushes them to the web in real time.  The device is powered by a Raspberry Pi, Bleduino micro controller, and a Sharp long range infrared range finder.
