Airbags on motorcycles
Saw this at motorcyle on line Airbags on BMWs
BMW has patented a new airbag system and is planning to fit it to its motorcycles. It uses ultrasound to build up a picture of where and how the rider is sitting on the bike. If he or she is flung forward too quickly, or to one side, the patent claims the new system can fire an airbag in a way to catch the rider safely.
BMW also claims the system will prevent injuries caused by the firing of the airbag and make the decision whether to fire or not...
