Italdesign has patented a smart seatbelt system for motorcycle and scooter riders.
Italdesign could soon introduce a new safety tech for motorcycle and scooter riders. The company is said to have patented a smart seatbelt system that will protect the rider in case of an accident.
According to media reports, the smart seatbelt system will be able to recognise the type of accident and react accordingly, minimising possible injuries.
Riders would be required to secure themselves to a rigid backplate with a 6-point harness. This is further attached to the two-wheeler (motorcycle or scooter) with a quick-release mechanism, controlled by an onboard computer.
In case of an accident, the smart system would be able to recognise the best response – either release the rider or keep them attached to the vehicle, ensuring the best protection.
The smart seatbelt system is also said to allow a certain degree of movement for the rider. However, probably not enough freedom to lean of the motorcycle while going around twisties.
