The Curve Warning function (CW) described here follows a holistic approach, which combines road geometry, motorcycle dynamics, rider input and riding styles. The warning strategy is based on the correction of longitudinal dynamics derived from a previewed ideal manoeuvre (reference manoeuvre) continuously computed from the actual state of the vehicle. Under normal driving conditions the reference manoeuvre matches the rider’s and no correction is needed and no warning is given. But if large differences between actual and ideal accelerations are found the rider is warned to decelerate or brake. As soon as the correct value of deceleration is achieved the warning disappears, improving system acceptability. Warnings are given to the rider via an HMI, which uses a haptic accelerator throttle, a vibrating glove and helmet, and a visual display.

Abstract

This article illustrates a novel Curve Warning system for motorcycles which has been developed in the SAFERIDER project (www.?saferider-eu.?org) of the 7th EU FP, among other Advanced Rider Assistance Systems. The Curve Warning function (CW) described here follows a holistic approach, which combines road geometry, motorcycle dynamics, rider input and riding styles. The warning strategy is based on the correction of longitudinal dynamics derived from a previewed ideal manoeuvre (reference manoeuvre) continuously computed from the actual state of the vehicle. Under normal driving conditions the reference manoeuvre matches the rider’s and no correction is needed and no warning is given. But if large differences between actual and ideal accelerations are found the rider is warned to decelerate or brake. As soon as the correct value of deceleration is achieved the warning disappears, improving system acceptability. Warnings are given to the rider via an HMI, which uses a haptic accelerator throttle, a vibrating glove and helmet, and a visual display.
