MSF and VTTI Create Big Brother Bike for Study

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute just gave out 100 free bikes... that will spy on their riders. This is the first "naturalistic" motorcycle study, meaning that this is the first study to observe bikers in their natural habitat, the sports bar the road.

Each bike features five color cameras, accelerometers, a GPS, gyro, forward mounted radar, brake and throttle input sensors, and a machine vision lane tracker in order to time the exact moment to explode learn more about the average person's riding habits.

So remember, the MSF is watching you while you sleep watching out for your safety.
