Motorcycle research

In the motorcycle sector, the analysis of behaviour and experience of the motorcyclist in conjunction with the motorcycle is becoming increasingly important. The focus is on both the fundamental understanding of the complex riding task when riding single-track vehicles, as well as insights regarding properly designed vehicle ergonomics or assistance systems. The combination of limited space and demanding riding environment (e.g. weather, physical activity) make a reasonable evaluation of control and display concepts or assistance systems on the motorcycle even more important. The targeted support of motorcyclists by such systems only comes into play if, for example, the potential for distraction is kept low. In addition, topics such as rider state assessment and training are addressed. Such issues will be investigated in both the motorcycle simulation and in on-road experiments on test tracks and in real traffic. We are looking forward to developing tailored study concepts with you!
