The Development of Motorcycle Artificial Intelligence

An article was recently published discussing how motorcycle artificial intelligence (AI) systems can be used to reduce the rate of collisions on the road, particularly as it pertains to turning speed. One of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents as a whole are turns that are taken too sharply. When someone takes a curve at high speed, the tires lose their grip on the road and vehicles, including motorcycles, can flip. Vehicle rollover accidents are a serious problem and can lead to significant traumatic injuries. This is an even larger problem when it comes to motorcycles because there is no protection between the rider and the pavement.

Oil Slick Can Cause Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle accident can happen at any time, and one of the most common contributing factors is an oil slick. Oil is required to keep nearly every vehicle running at maximum efficiency. It keeps the gears from sticking and ensures the engine operates properly. Unfortunately, this also means that oil can leak out of these vehicles onto the roads.
