Researchers have rolled out a new wearable safety device capable of increasing riding safety and improve overall riding experience of motorcyclists.
Launched Known as Motobit SENTINEL, the wearable device is specifically designed to help a rider receive warnings about potentially dangerous situations through strong vibration feedback by wirelessly connecting via Bluetooth to a smartphone and the Motobit app.
Motobit Sentinel, a product of two years of diligent research and development of the team of motobit GmbH, went on sale from the 6th of October, 2020.
Motobit SENTINEL offers the following key features:
Speed coach: Thanks to the advanced algorithms in combination with the Motobit app, Motobit SENTINEL understands the users’ riding behavior and analyses the course of the road ahead in order to suggest the adequate riding speed for every situation.
Emergency contact notification: In case of an occurring road issue, emergency contacts can be notified by pressing the easy to access button on the device to inform the rescue chain as quickly as possible.
Group riding: Motobit SENTINEL is not just for solo riders: by combining two devices or more, the rider leading the group will be alerted if another group motorcyclist cannot keep up.
Haptic feedback: Motobit SENTINEL informs the motorcyclists through powerful and non-distracting vibrations so that the rider can keep the focus on the road.
As every motorcyclist uses different riding gear, Motobit SENTINEL has been designed to be placed in different body regions. It can be worn as a classic wristband but also be attached to the trousers’ belt or kidney belt or simply be inserted in any desired pocket.
Maker of Motobit SENTINEL, motobit GmbH, was founded by motorcycle enthusiasts with the vision to make motorcycling as safe as driving a car.
Based on their own experiences as motorcyclists, the founding team realized the difficulty in estimating the proper riding speed when approaching different situations as well as the importance of being warned about dangers in advance that may otherwise create great risks for motorcyclists.
