For decades, BMW Motorrad has been a leader when it comes to further improving motorcycle safety. ABS, dynamic traction control DTC or the electronic cruise control with radar-based distance control ACC are just a few examples of BMW Motorrad's innovative strength when it comes to motorcycle safety. This topic is the focus of the cross-manufacturer consortium for motorcycle safety Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) founded in 2016. As a founding member of the CMC, BMW Motorrad will continue to work together with other well-known manufacturers to further increase motorcycling safety and make riding on two wheels even safer and more attractive.
CMC will continue after milestones are met.
At the beginning of December 2020, the motorcycle manufacturers of the CMC signed an agreement on the continuation of the cooperation from 2021. The aim is to further increase motorcycle safety and ensure that motorcycles maintain their role in the mobility of the future. BMW Motorrad, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., KTM AG, Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd, Suzuki Motor Corporation and Triumph Design Ltd. hereby express their intention to support these common goals in the CMC 'Next'.
With the expansion of the focus, the investigation of ADAS systems (Advanced Driver Assistance System) for both cars and motorcycles will be included in the work. This "system" approach aims to create synergies between onboard sensor systems and connectivity. The CMC members see safety as a common goal for the industry and advocate a strategy to improve motorcycle safety.
CMC 'Basic Specification' as a milestone.
Since it was founded in 2016, CMC has been working on a Basic Specification (BS) for motorcycle-specific V2X * communication systems. CMC published this 'CMC-BS' on December 11, 2020. The Basic Specification is a first step in describing the function of motorcycle V2X systems. In a further step beyond 2020, the manufacturers involved will define further essential functional requirements for standardization.
CMC 'Next' strengthens its cooperation with the automotive and other vehicle industries.
Another decisive step for CMC "Next" is the cooperation with the automotive industry and other vehicle manufacturers, since motorcycles should communicate in a standardized way. Modern cars are increasingly equipped with onboard sensor systems (including radar, cameras) and driver assistance systems. These vehicle systems must include motorcycle requirements in order to increase their safety effect in mixed traffic with motorcycles. CMC believes that bespoke motorcycle / car scenarios and tests need to be developed and standardized.
As a motorcycle and car manufacturer, the BMW Group is interested in the topics of CMC NEXT in two ways and sees special opportunities for synergies in this dual role, especially in the area of onboard sensors. BMW Motorrad plans to use the driver assistance functions for motorcycle safety and, as part of CMC NEXT, work towards ensuring that both V2X systems and onboard sensor-based systems for motorcycles and cars work hand in hand and not as stand-alone systems for Use.
