The Five Technologies to Prevent Motorcycle Accidents
Have you ever been involved in an accident that left you wondering on technique that would have helped you avoid such a situation? For instance, a particular braking system or communication technology that you might have had. There are a variety of such technologies that work to prevent such misfortunes.
The five technologies to prevent motorcycle accidents are;
1. Autotalks’ bike-to-vehicle solution: This particular tech makes other road users easily see your ride if you are on the road. You may have customized your ride to be virtually invisible, which is not your fault, but with this invention other motorists or cameras will see you well to avoid a collision. It is designed with a simple integration, portable and consumes low power.
2. Adaptive headlights: This is ideal for those who drive mostly after sunset. Ordinary headlights do not illuminate as you may want when making a turn. These types of headlights prevent potential dangers that may arise from a stalled car or a pothole. They work by measuring your lean angle and cover areas that ordinary headlights will miss.
3. Ride-to-wire throttle system: This is a technology that regulates the amount of fuel going into your engine. Therefore, you are not in total control to avoid accident caused by human errors. If you were the one controlling the speed fully, stalls or losing your ride’s control will often be the case. Apart from a good control over the engine, this technology also gives a smooth riding time.
4. Bosch’s stability control: Stability is the most important part of safe bike riding. They work hand-in-hand with steering dampers, shock absorbers, and good tires. However, when riding in hostile conditions such as adverse weather or a rough terrain, this will play a vital role. It constitutes a computer that applies the brakes, both the disc and engine brakes when it senses a loss of traction.
5. Self-balancing technology: Honda is currently developing this. It has been named Honda Riding Assistance. When used, your ride’s system automatically enlarges the fork angle and cuts the connection between the front fork from your bike’s handlebars. Small steering inputs are then used to make it balance entirely on its own. This technology helps a great deal from preventing bikes from toppling over when motorists are at a low speed.
When you wear a protective gear it will not necessarily prevent you from getting into an accident. Helmets and other staff only reduce the harm done to your body. Therefore, you should work to equip your ride with these technologies.
