Car-to-Bike Connectivity: Is This Effective Technology to Avoid Accidents?

    Report added by Millbrook on 26 May 2021
We know that on the roads, motorcycles are the most vulnerable; in most cases due to lack of visibility. Is 5G connectivity going to revolutionise this? This report takes a look at this question in more detail supported by UTEC Millbrook.

The accident rate of motorised two-wheelers in France has reduced since 2019, but according to the latest assessment of the ONISR (National Interministerial Observatory of Road Safety), the figures remain high in view of the small percentage they represent among road users: 25% of deaths for only 2% of motorised two-wheelers.

What if one of the solutions to limit these road accidents lay in connectivity between vehicles? As part of its research programme, the MAIF Foundation decided to finance the UTAC CERAM Millbrook research project, the results of which have just been published. This research project highlights the potential of inter-vehicle connectivity to avoid accidents, particularly collisions between cars and motorbikes.
