CONNECTEDRIDE

For decades now, BMW Motorrad has been regarded as a frontrunner when it comes to issues of safety in connection with motorcycling. With the R 1200 RS ConnectedRide prototype, BMW Motorrad presented a motorcycle that looks into the future of motorcycle safety systems. In addition to a crossing and left-turn assistant it features a large number of further systems designed to prevent accidents between motorcycles and passenger cars.

Other traffic users who are about to disregard the right of way are warned as well as the motorcycle rider himself. This dangerous situation is detected and warning measures are initiated thanks to Vehicle to Vehicle Communication (V2V), based on a cross-manufacturer communication standard and extremely high-precision localization via D-GNSS (Differential-Global Navigation Satellite System).

In 2016 the CMC (Connected Motorcycle Consortium www.cmc-info.net) was founded by BMW Motorrad, Honda and Yamaha with the aim of promoting Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) for motorcycles with as many cross-manufacturer standards as possible. The only cross-manufacturer consortium for motorcycle safety worldwide has been steadily gaining significance. The CMC takes special account of the requirements specific to motorcycling in view of the highly dynamic development of automotive safety systems. This above all includes Vehicle to Vehicle Communication which has not taken motorcycle-specific safety aspects into consideration sufficiently so far.

In addition to providing the opportunity for intensive dialogue, the CMC will focus on joint motor show appearances as well as events in 2018 in order to actively illustrate the latest safety system developments for two-wheeled vehicles. A foretaste of what is to come was given at the CMC Conference 2017 by the BMW R 1200 RS ConnectedRide prototype and two prototypes based on a Honda CRF 1000 L Africa Twin and a Yamaha Tracer 900 using a common architecture.
