Could your next bike talk to a car?

Honda sees a SMIDSY-free future...

COULD future Hondas tell the car coming out of the side street up ahead to hang on a bloody minute, you're coming through?

No, each Honda two-wheeler of the future won't come with a free Asimo to do your every bidding - but they well might be fitted with technology that can communicate with similarly-equipped cars to keep you out of harm's way. 

At least, that's the picture Honda painted at the 19th World ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) Congress, held in Vienna in October. 

The 'Motorcycle Approaching Indication' application is a connectivity system that warns both driver and rider when it detects that there is an obscured vehicle potentially approaching their direction of travel. 

Honda first proposed such a system in 1999, and demoed a version in 2008 on a Gold Wing. It has since refined ITS for more compact bikes, such as the ITS-enabled NC700X it used in this year's demo. So far, warning systems for the two most common types of car-bike collisions - T-boning and being cut off by a car turning left - have been demoed successfully.  

ITS could potentially also communicate with roadside infrastructure, warning of hazards in the road. (Does that include unmarked police cars with radar guns? Honda doesn't say…)


Thank you for sharing your details and experience I think it very good for me.

Motorcycles are heavy, and along these lines, increasingly hard to direct. In case you're driving through a bend on your bike, you'll have to slender your body without moving the handlebars to an extreme. One territory where the riding method of a bike is nearly equivalent to that of a bike is in braking.

if it is actually happening in real life? if it is then it would be great for bikers and car drivers I know with technology we can do everything possible I don't know about this much Honda is working in or have done working this and launching soon just wait and see what will happen I am from and regularly writing different content on technology topics actually this is something strange.

It is really a joyful rides either a car or bike but sometime people want to ride on bike. Lots of article have written about it, actually I am a writer at and doing writing but sometime I read and write about technology and this is the best topic about vehicles.

There are a lots of difference in between cars and motorcycles and both rides have different joy we feel easily now we have a lots of applications and new application comes in ground, also working in this field.

Take vitamin B6 and B12 supplements, they accelerate your metabolism like no other Clean yourself in the shower or sink when you play music

On the off chance that your bicycle is one that can be separated and accepting you realize how to take it apart and put it back together this may be a decent alternative. You can secure it securely in the <a href="">UK Assignment</a> storage or in the rearward sitting arrangement while you travel. On the off chance that this won't work for you, look for a bicycle rack that will meet your vehicle and your requirements.
