Harley files patent for AEB

It appears as though Harley Davidson believes their upcoming bikes could benefit from more advanced safety systems. They have recently filed a patent for a new automatic emergency braking system, which at first glance may seem like a good idea, I think may actually do more harm then good. A bike suddenly braking without the riders awareness could be very problematic. HD is well aware of these risks, and as such, will be including additional sensors to determine if the rider is paying attention and ready to respond to the emergency braking.

To me this kind of system will probably end up doing more harm then good. I just don't see how they can realistically alert the rider that the AEB is being engaged, in a way that gives them enough time to prepare themselves. We're talking about split seconds here.

I think a tier system will work well that starts off by giving you soft alerts like a notification, vibrating grips, and so on before finally engaging the brakes as you get closer. Ultimately riders will have to get familiar with their bike as they always have since the beginning of time.

I just feel like its going to be difficult to create an 'emergency' system that gives the rider proper leeway time. We're talking about fractions of a second when it comes to avoiding an accident.

Ideally vehicle to vehicle communication will become inclusive of motorcycles, which should drastically reduce the number of accidents. BMW already has self driving autonomous bikes, so that tech will eventually find its way into more models.

You can bet that even pedestrians will be included in that as we get more wearable technology, display safety alerts on a Google Glass type product in a distracted world is good for all of us.

Pedestrian deaths have actually increased over last year, despite the advancements we've seen in safety systems. Not sure if that's just due to distracted driving, or the fact that everyone is driving around in high riding SUV's.

pedestrians are just as distracted as drivers, hence the need for more integration and more data inputs via wearable technology, the soon arrival of 5G networks should help speed things up.

Harley should concentrate on their mirrors! The mirrors on my Livewire are worthless! I bought some spot mirrors just so I could see behind me and not my arms.
