Crash-proof Motorcycle Technology [Video]

Share this Article

Here’s a video clip demonstrating new technology out of the Netherlands that could revolutionize motorcycle safety.

Developed by a company called TFKL Engineering, the technology is somewhat similar to Volvo’s pedestrian detection system that scans the area around the vehicle for anything that might cause an accident.

The TFKL system scans the environment to look for potential hazards. Any dangers are shown on a heads-up display that’s built into a motorcycle helmet visor.

Take a look at the video after the jump to see how it works. (Note: keep in mind that this IS still just a prototype!)

    You still have to look where you are going. Oh, and wearing all black is not such a good idea.

    Nothing is crashproof – or unsinkable for that matter. I thought it was the riders job to scan for hazards, or am I being old fashioned?
