The MoProVe (Motorcycle Probe Vehicle) was developed to understand the causes for accidents involving motorcycles.
In cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology, a KTM 1290 Super Adventure was transformed into a high-tech research and measuring bike featuring a camera system, steering angle sensors, accelerometers, CAN-Bus reader and dGPS.
The research motorcycle is used to analyse riding dynamics based on riding behaviour and interaction with the road infrastructure. The MoProVe is available for safety inspections of motorcycle routes. Findings are compared with those obtained from car and truck testing (e.g. ROADSTAR) and incorporated into road planning recommendations and proactive road safety systems.
