How a smartphone could find your stolen bike

Your smartphone could become part of a city-wide safety network that can track down stolen goods and warn you if you’re about to enter a crime hotspot.
Modern smartphones have enough processing power to render augmented reality, where standard images are overlaid with data and annotations, while Bluetooth enables close-range radio communication between devices.
These capacities are being linked together to make city dwellers safer by an EU-funded research project called City.Risks which has developed an app that networks all the smartphones in an area through an operations centre.
