activeand driver assistance functions continue to expand in the automotive industry. It’s more likely than not that a new car at a dealership will come standard with a set of technologies. Motorcycles are another story, however, and while alternatives exist to keep bikers safe, RideVision hopes its technology will be a game-changer.
The Israel-based company on Monday announced its “collision aversion technology,” which brings many familiar features found in new cars to a motorcycle in one tidy package. Alerts are transmitted by LEDs mounted in the mirrors and two wide-angle cameras mounted on the front and rear. Together, they provide warnings to drivers if a vehicle is in their blind spot, forward collision warning, safety distance measures and dangerous overtaking notification. The idea is to make the concept as low-key as possible for riders so that they don’t interfere with the riding experience. But the flashing LED lights will surely grab runners’ attention when it matters.
Perhaps most impressive are the AI-driven functions that calculate forward collision alerts. The technology takes into account road conditions, speed and impact time before alerting riders to the possibility. Nevertheless, drivers must remain vigilant because no technology in the world today can prevent other motorists from doing the wrong thing at the wrong time.
RideVision is on sale now, but the company requires you to sign up before getting in touch with a retailer and the initial cost is $ 360. Then, to use the data collected during the trips, it takes an additional $ 20 per month to use the associated smartphone application. The company plans to add more features to its app in the near future to sweeten the deal.
