Continental has developed a sensor box for motorcycles that measures the vehicle's tilt angle by evaluating a wide range of driving data. This system makes it possible to intervene via the engine management system or the brakes to stabilize the motorcycle's driving dynamics. This intervention – which the driver hardly notices – will significantly improve directional stability and road holding and increase road safety. Customers buying high-end or sports motorcycles, in particular, attach great importance to owning a motorcycle that they can control. Apart from improving safety, the traction control system optimizes acceleration performance. Using this safety system makes motorcycling a more pleasurable experience, explained Thomas Greb, business team head of motorcycle sensoric systems in the Sensorics business unit of Continental's Chassis & Safety division.
