Autotalks has joined the Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC). Autotalks will work with other CMC members to help realize the vision of a uniform motorcycle platform for V2M (Vehicle-to-Motorcycle) communication.
Specifically, Autotalks and other CMC members will work together to enhance Cooperative-Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) applications in motorcycles in a way that will help minimize motorcycle accidents.
The Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) is a collaboration between manufacturers, suppliers, researchers and associations to make motorcycles part of the future of connected mobility.
Autotalks’ V2M solution is based on a second generation V2X chipset developed by the company which allows motorcyclists and other drivers to receive alerts on life threatening situations to avoid road accidents. By joining CMC, Autotalks becomes part of an industry-wide effort to have motorcycles be a part of the C-ITS conversation which will contribute to their safety on the road.
Autotalks’ V2M solution enables detection of motorcycles that are not visible to the human eye, cameras or any other sensors. The advantages of the Autotalks’ solution include, simple integration, low power consumption, the smallest form factor, highest range of operating temperature and smallest physical size, which results in its resistance to the strong vibration and challenging environmental conditions of residing on a motorcycle.
Hagai Zyss, Autotalks CEO, said, ‘As an early innovator in motorcycle to vehicle communication, Autotalks is excited to be part of CMC and help set an interoperable, unified and practical framework for connected motorcycles which starts with safety. Together, we’ll work to save the lives of the most vulnerable road users. According to studies, V2M communication will reduce road accidents by 80%.’
