Project summary

The aim of the PISa project is to develop and implement "reliable and fail-safe" integrated safety systems for a range of Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs), which will greatly improve the performance and primary safety (handling and stability) and can link to secondary safety devices.

PTWs are single track vehicles, which means that the rider has a more difficult vehicle to control in relation to a car, in particular when cornering or braking, and even more so in emergency situations. Only a few (high-end) motorcycle brands are fitted with ABS and (partly) combined braking systems. Optimization of the PTW brake performance will reduce the impact speed in case an accident cannot be avoided and this will directly reduce the fatality rate and injury level. More
