INTERMOT, together with BOSCH, Cardo Systems, Digades, Sena and the Connected Motorcycle Consortium, with its founding members BMW Motorrad, Honda and Yamaha – as well as Ducati, Kawasaki, KTM and Suzuki – will showcase the latest solutions and innovations. The “Connected Motorcycle World” theme area will be located in the heart of INTERMOT in Hall 6, and is organized around five main themes:
Connectivity Vehicle to Vehicle: Communication systems between motorcycles and between motorcycles and other vehicles. This enables vehicles, for example, to connect with each other in a network of so-called cooperative, intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) and detect each other quickly. This is particularly safety-relevant for motorcycles since a large number of accidents occur because the motorcycle is not seen by the vehicle driver.
Connected Horizon and Head Up Display (HUD): Driving assistance systems for enhanced safety that collect vehicle data, static and dynamic map data, and current traffic information, and provide the rider with information on speed limits, curves and bends, danger points and traffic jams.
Group Riding Communication: In addition to safety, the focus is also on “smart” solutions and increased driving comfort. This is where bike-to-bike in-helmet communication solutions and smartphone-based communication systems are showcased. These naturally also include access to navigation and infotainment systems.
App and Smartphone Integration: Intelligent smartphone applications can be controlled directly from the motorcycle’s handlebars. They collect driving dynamics data that can be loaded directly into the cloud and compared with the passengers.
Emergency Call: Intelligent safety systems whose sensor technology can automatically detect a motorcycle accident and make an emergency call. This technology can save lives, especially on sparsely trafficked roads.
In addition to the five main themes, motorcycle dealers and enthusiasts can also learn about the digital present and future of motorcycles and scooters in expert lectures and roundtables held on the “Connected Motorcycle World” stage.
