The driver’s intentions and actions are the highest priority and the system will provide assistance when it is judged to be ineffective.”
Connected cars and motorcycle-to-car and other motorcycle communication systems using radio waves are progressive technology. Running cars and motorbikes communicate with each other to notify dangerous situations that are too close, out of sight.
The motorcycle’s stability support system helps the motorcycle to run at low speed to keep its balance and run stably.
Maruyama added: “This system is still in the research and development stage. We look forward to developing the system further in the future and commercializing the support function that can reliably perform avoidance operations. such as running, turning and stopping when such as an accident is caused and an avoidance operation is urgent.”
Safe running education is in full swing. Running data – speed, cornering, rest time – is tracked and fed back to the driver to learn more about safe driving.
