Advanced telematics for enhancing the SAFEty and comfort of motorcycle RIDERs (SAFERIDER)
Start date: Jan 1, 2008, End date: Dec 31, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Motorcycle and moped fatalities account for 17,8% of the total number of road accident fatalities in Europe and, compared to a passenger car occupant, a motorcycle rider is 26 times more likely to die in a crash, based on vehicle miles travelled, as riders are among the vulnerable road users.SAFERIDER aims to enhanced PTW riders' safety by applying ADAS/IVIS on PTWs of all types for the most crucial functionalities and develop efficient and rider-friendly interfaces and interaction elements for riders' comfort and safety.Relevant applications prioritisation is based on in-depth accident studies, riders needs and wants, as well as benchmarking and ergonomic inspection of existing applications. The selected functionalities will be developed according to a modular and multilayer (perception-decision-action) architecture, allowing multi ADAS/IVIS applications setup and integration. Four ADAS applications are preliminary planned to be developed, namely Speed Alert, Curve Speed Warning, Frontal Collision Warning and Intersection Support; as well as four IVIS applications, namely eCall, Telediagnostic Services, Navigation and Route Guidance, Weather, Traffic and Black Spot Warnings. They are supported holistically by optimal and concise warning concepts and strategies, supported by new haptic elements, an integrated smart helmet and context-related HMI adaptation; integrated upon 3 riding simulator and 8 PTW demonstrators of 3 manufacturers (PIAGGIO, TRIUMPH and YAMAHA) and tested in 6 sites Europe-wide.
