As vulnerable road users, motorcycles need every advantage they can get but safety technology for bikes has lagged behind cars for a long while. Ride Vision intends to change that with its Collision Aversion Technology (CAT) camera system for motorcycles.
The system uses a pair of cameras mounted fore and aft of the motorcycle, connected to a ECU. The ECU processes camera images to determine if the rider is in imminent danger and sends a visual signal to the rider via warning lights mounted to the wing mirrors.
Still at Kickstarter stage, Ride Vision has raised USD 2.5 million (RM10 million) in early-stage funding and aims to use standard cameras and sensors to keep costs down. Information on the Ride Vision is scarce but there is a Youtube video illustrating how the system works.
