Potential benefits of MAEB in real-world motorcycle crashes

ABRAM project will perform a new evaluation of the potential benefits of motorcycle autonomous emergency braking (MAEB) using Australian real-world crashes.

For this study, the latest and most elaborate triggering algorithms for MAEB will be tested. This version of MAEB addresses all sorts of motorcycle-to-car crashes including nasty DCA 121 configuration.

ABRAM will use in-depth crash investigation data to estimate the applicability of MAEB and the impact speed reduction that MAEB would have produced in real-world motorcycle crashes. In this study, typical uncertainties of crash reconstructions will be addressed adopting a statistical approach.
