- Bosch develops motorcycle crash detection alert system
- Sends accident information to Bosch
- Helps in reducing deaths due to motorcycle accidents
Bosch has developed a new emergency call system that goes by the name Help Connect. This system will automatically call for assistance when it detects motorcycle accidents.
This new Bosch system relies on the inertial sensor unit that’s integrated into the Bosch’s motorcycle stability control. This system measures the bike's acceleration along with the angular velocity a hundred times a second. This information will help the system determine the position and the angle of lean of the bike.
This system also has a crash algorithm that determines if the motorcycle got into an accident or whether it was just a fall. If Help Connect decides that a vehicle got into an accident, it will transmit information about the scene and the rider to the Bosch Service Center. In severe accidents, the service could use the rider’s phone to find their location and direct emergency responders to the scene.
Bosch plans to first launch this technology in Germany. It has plans for further expansion but as of now, it doesn’t have any confirmed plans for the tech’s international launch.
