Bosch safety tech for motorcyclists

08/08/2014 | Author: Autoguide | 0 Comments Back To Home   < Previous News   |   Next news >

MSC motorcycle control system

BOSCH Group, one of the leading automotive suppliers, has come out with MSC motorcycle control system which offers the best possible safety for motorcyclists. The system records the current lean angle and adapts the ABS support and traction control to it. This means that it is especially useful in corners, which is where almost half of all fatal motorcycle accidents occur.
 
“Like ESP in cars, MSC currently offers the best possible support, whether braking or accelerating, and even when the rider is leaning over at a steep angle,” says Mr Gerhard Steiger, President of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division
 
In 2013, 30 per cent of all motorcycles produced in Europe featured ABS. At the end of 2013, the world’s first motorcycle stability control system first went into series production in the KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R. MSC technology is based on an ABS system including composite brake function, and also features a lean angle sensor. This measures the current lean of the motorcycle, allowing the system to adjust its braking and acceleration interventions to suit the lean angle. 
 
A press release issued by the company said Bosch can offer brake control systems to suit any type of motorised two-wheeler that features a hydraulic brake. As a cost-effective solution especially for emerging markets such as India, ABS 9 light employs a single hydraulic brake channel to control the front wheel. With two channels, ABS 9 base offers anti-lock protection for the front and rear wheels. ABS 9 plus is particularly suited to high-performance machines.
 
Besides technology, there is another factor that has a direct impact on the number of motorcyclists killed on the roads: the weather. Looking back over several years, it is clear that the number of motorcycle accidents always increases significantly when the weather is good. In April and May, the number of motorcyclists killed or severely injured seems particularly dependent on the weekend weather. When the sun comes out, many riders choose to make the most of the opportunity to go on their first outing – precisely when they are unpracticed and overconfident. The consequences are often fatal. 
 
Irrespective of weather conditions, ABS and MSC can provide comprehensive support, regardless of whether a bend that was entered too fast unexpectedly becomes tighter, whether a vehicle suddenly pulls out into the road ahead, or whether the road surface is wet or wet in patches.
 
Automotive technology is the largest Bosch Group business sector. In 2013, its sales came to 30.6 billion euros, or 66 per cent of total group sales. This makes the Bosch Group one of the leading automotive suppliers.
