Motorcycles that See: Multifocal Stereo Vision Sensor for Advanced Safety Systems in Tilting Vehicles

Advanced driver assistance systems, ADAS, have shown the possibility to anticipate crash accidents and effectively assist road users in critical traffic situations. This is not the case for motorcyclists, in fact ADAS for motorcycles are still barely developed. The authors' aim was to study a camera-based sensor for the application of preventive safety in tilting vehicles. The authors identified two road conflict situations for which automotive remote sensors installed in a tilting vehicle are likely to fail in the identification of critical obstacles. Accordingly, the authors set two experiments conducted in real traffic conditions to test their stereo vision sensor. Their promising results support the application of this type of sensors for advanced motorcycle safety applications.
