With BMW ConnectedRide, Bikers Will Never Ride Alone

Adapting technology they’ve developed in the automotive realm, BMW is now testing ConnectedRide, an intelligent transportation system that for the first time integrates motorcycles into a vehicle-to-vehicle communication network. Not only does the technology alert drivers that a motorcycle might be in their blind spot or approaching an intersection, but it can also “see” around blind corners and alert riders to inclement weather or road obstacles up ahead.
