Autonomous emergency braking - First details about the field study

The tests of automatic deceleration events simulating the activation of motorcycle autonomous emergency braking (MAEB) were completed last week at the low speed test facility at Bosch Australia, Clayton, VIC.

The tests involved 15 participants (including one female rider) between 21 and 55 years old. Each participant was asked to ride the test vehicle along a stretch. While cruising at a constant speed of 40 km/h, the participants could experience unexpected decelerations of the motorcycle, designed to produce the effects of an autonomous emergency braking event. At the end of their test session, the participants were asked to report on their experience with the automatic decelerations via questionnaire and recorded interview.
