Technology Gives Motorcycles 360° Predictive Vision

Ride Vision has introduced what it calls the world’s first Collision Aversion Technology giving any motorcycle 360º Predictive Vision. Demand for vehicle safety has always been a top priority in the automotive industry, recently intensified with the proliferation of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and technologies developed to prevent collisions. With the rise of autonomous vehicles, ADAS systems are becoming a core feature in modern vehicles. Ironically the higher risk two-wheel market has been overlooked despite the February 2018 NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) report that motorcyclist fatalities occurred nearly 28 times more frequently than passenger car occupant fatalities in traffic crashes. EU statistics show similar data.

 

Ride Vision has overcome the technological, cost and size limitations preventing ADAS life-saving solutions for motorcycles. The company’s CAT technology is a fusion of a neural network based deep learning platform and computer vision that enables an accurate, affordable, life-saving solution for any motorcycle, without the need for complex hardware or expensive cameras. CAT sensors detect threats beyond the rider’s sight, predict risk and highlight the relevant threat for the rider, all in 100s milliseconds - one-tenth of a second. This life-saving technology for the new and experienced rider provides almost instant 360º collision protection without distracting the rider’s focus. For greater insight, visit Ride Vision.
