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.
