BMW Lauches Its Latest Smart System for Motorcycles

BMW recently introduced fans to its range of smart motorcycles -- vehicles that provide the motorcyclist with an emergency contact system to help in the event of a crash. Though similar automotive systems exist on the market, most are made for trucks and cars but this will be the first for motorcycles.

The system can be triggered by the motorcyclist themselves in instances where they may be witnesses to a crash. More importantly, the smart motorcycles have an automatic response system. With their built-in sensors, the motorcycles will be able to differentiate between a more serious accident and one that may not be too harmful. Each will also have the ability to contact emergency services either immediately or after a delay depending on the severity of the crash.

As motorcycles tend to have higher rates of injury when compared to other automobiles, this emergency response sensor could save lives while preventing serious accidents in the process.
