Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) was proved to be an effective and reliable technology in reducing serious consequences of road vehicles crashes. However, the feasibility in terms of end-users’ acceptability for the AEB for motorcycles (MAEB) still has to be evaluated. So far, only Automatic Braking (AB) activations in straight-line motion and decelerations up to 2 m/s2 were tested with common riders. This paper presents a procedure which provides comprehensive support for the design of new… Expand

Field testing the applicability of motorcycle autonomous emergency braking (MAEB) during pre-crash avoidance maneuver
Assessment of the applicability of MAEB activation during lateral avoidance maneuver and its benefits in this scenario found that MAEB interventions with decelerations up to 0.3 g can be easily managed by motorcycle riders not only in straight-line conditions but also during an avoidance maneuver.

A robust estimation of the effects of motorcycle autonomous emergency braking (MAEB) based on in-depth crashes in Australia
The small difference between the baseline and variant case results demonstrates that the potential effects of MAEB computed from the cases described in in-depth crash reports are typically a good approximation, despite limitations of postcrash investigation. Expand
Analysis of the minimum swerving distance for the development of a motorcycle autonomous braking system.
A model to compute the minimum swerving distance needed by a powered two-wheeler (PTW) to avoid the collision against a fixed obstacle, named last-second swerving model (Lsw), is proposed. Expand
Preliminary investigation on the dynamics of motorcycle fall behavior: influence of a simple airbag jacket system on rider safety
Airbag technology, predominantly developed for cars, is still in its first stages for motorcycles. Motorcyclists are more likely to experience falls due to front slippage, rear slippage or high-sideExpand
Development of a low-cost motorcycle riding simulator for emergency scenarios involving swerving

Analysis of the stability of PTW riders in autonomous braking scenarios.
It is concluded that autonomous braking at low deceleration will not cause significant instabilities of the rider in comparison to manual braking in idealized laboratory conditions and further research into the development and implementation of autonomous braking systems for PTWs seems valuable.
