Unveiling of prototype Vehicle to Vehicle technology that warns drivers of danger
Automobili Lamborghini is steering safety forward by supporting Ducati’s initiative on motorcycle-car connectivity. Debuted at Germany’s Lausitzring race track, the Demo Event organized by the Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) showcased Ducati’s latest updates in Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication technology. Since its start in 2016, CMC, with Ducati as an early adopter, has been committed to identifying the most high-risk scenarios for motorcyclists. Using this research, Ducati developed a prototype featuring an additional screen that displays warning signals to alert riders about upcoming dangers. Lamborghini maintained this research by providing a Urus SUV for case simulations, focusing on scenarios like obscured visibility and risky intersections.
Three critical cases, IMA (Intersection Movement Assist), LTA (Left Turn Assist), and DNPW (Do Not Pass Warning), were tested. For instance, in the IMA case, if a motorbike and a car approach an intersection simultaneously, a warning signal pops up on the car’s dashboard urging the driver to proceed cautiously. In the LTA and DNPW cases, similarly, the tech warns either the motorcyclist or the car driver based on who is attempting a maneuver like a turn or a pass. With this partnership, Lamborghini and Ducati are introducing technological innovation that sets new benchmarks for motorist and motorcyclist safety.
