Self-Riding Motorcycle Helps ADAS, Autonomous Vehicle Testing

Self-Riding Motorcycle Helps ADAS, Autonomous Vehicle Testing The combination of rapid acceleration and extreme maneuverability means motorcycles present a particular challenge for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). A new self-driving motorcycle co-developed by AB Dynamics (Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, England) promises to allow ADAS and autonomous systems to be tested under much more challenging and representative conditions (Fig. 1). Figure 1: AB Dynamics’ riderless motorcycle retains the full performance potential... [Lire la suite]
