The CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
This annual event has just taken place in Las Vegas and BMW Motorrad showcased their revolutionary Riding Assistant technology. The system is all about improved riding dynamics, quicker reactions and supporting riders through tricky situations.
"We can shift gears, we can steer the bike, but the fully automatic motorcycle is not our goal," said BMW’s Active Motorcycle Safety expert, Stefan Hans. "This is about development and if we can create a bike that can cope with all riding tasks we can offer it as an assistance system for the rider.
The video below demonstrates this technology with a BMW R 1200 GS using the riding assistant to navigate it’s surroundings and react to obstacles or dangers automatically.
