What sounds like an April Fool’s joke or science fiction at best, is something Honda is really working on. Reading thoughts to be able to steer the motorcycle better.
BMI – Brain-Machine Interface
Work on a corresponding system has now become known through the publication of a Honda patent. The patent, which has only just been published, was already submitted in May 2019 and describes a future vision in the motorcycle sector. It is about something that Honda calls a “brain-machine interface”.
The BMI is to be used to compensate for different “driving skills”. Serious accidents, which could happen due to inexperience, are to be prevented. The system should learn with the driver or be more and more restrained. This means that if the driver gains further experience and improves his driving skills, the system will become more and more restrained and leave more and more control to the driver himself.
Supporting also during acrobatic vehicle maneuvers
The patent also describes that the system should recognize intended driving maneuvers on the basis of the smallest impulses introduced by the driver and support the implementation of the driving maneuver. – Also for “acrobatic vehicle maneuvers”. The patent drawings therefore also show wheelies and stoppies.
How all this is supposed to work exactly is not yet known. But it is interesting to see what they are working on and which visions they are following. In the short term you will probably not be able to find such a system in a production motorcycle.
