Title (EN) FACILITATING LANE-SPLITTING BY MOTORCYCLES
(FR) FACILITATION DE LA CIRCULATION ENTRE VOIES PAR DES MOTOCYCLETTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A controller of a motorcycle determines that the motorcycle is lane-splitting. The controller transmits a notification to vehicles in proximity to the motorcycle. In response to the notifications, the vehicles facilitate lane-splitting by the motorcycle. In particular the vehicles may flash lights to communicate that the vehicle has received the notification and will facilitate lane-splitting. The vehicles may facilitate lane-splitting by refraining from performing lane changes. The vehicles may further notify the motorcycle if lane changes are needed and the motorcycle controller may provide an alert to a rider.
(FR)L'invention concerne une unité de commande d'une motocyclette qui détermine que la motocyclette circule entre voies. L'unité de commande transmet une notification à des véhicules se situant à proximité de la motocyclette. En réponse à ces notifications, les véhicules facilitent la circulation entre voies par la motocyclette. En particulier les véhicules peuvent faire clignoter leurs feux pour indiquer qu'ils ont reçu la notification et vont faciliter la circulation entre voies. Les véhicules peuvent faciliter la circulation entre voies en s'abstenant d'effectuer des changements de voie. Les véhicules peuvent en outre notifier à la motocyclette que des changements de voie sont nécessaires et l'unité de commande de la motocyclette peut fournir une alerte au motocycliste.
