BASt report on the research project

The aim of the project FE 82.0710/2018 “Corner Fear”, which was carried out by the Department of Automotive Engineering (FZD) of the Technical University of Darmstadt (TU­DA), the Würzburg Institute of Transportation Sciences GmbH (WIVW) and Auto Mobil Forschung Dresden GmbH (AMFD), was to analyse the leaning positions of motorcyclists in everyday life and in dangerous situations for a variety of riders. The existence of a so-called lean angle threshold could be confirmed. Future work should focus on how these results can be transferred in increased motorcycle rider safety.
