An ABS ensures the shortest possible braking distance during emergency braking, allowing the driver to maintain control in extreme situations: Continental has developed a new generation of its compact 2-channel ABS for motorcycles. In this system (MK 100 MAB PYA), a new type of sensor is optionally integrated directly on the circuit board of the ABS. Thanks to this high integration, a separate motorcycle inertial measurement unit is no longer required. The mechanical holder for it on the motorcycle is eliminated, no wiring harness is required, and production becomes easier for the motorcycle manufacturer. In addition, integrating the sensor on the circuit board is significantly more cost-effective than a separate box, which is particularly relevant in volume models. “With sensor integration on our new 2-channel ABS, we are creating the conditions for comprehensive protection functions and thus even greater safety. It also reduces the installation space required on the motorcycle, which is a major advantage for our customers,” says Lothar Kienle, head of motorcycle development at Continental.

Continental brings motorcycles online: At the EICMA 2022 motorcycle trade fai,r the technology company will present its solution for always-on connectivity of motorcycles to a broad public for the first time. The Connected Infotainment Box enables the use of digital services such as turn-by-turn navigation and stolen vehicle tracking, even without a connection to a smartphone. “Our discussions with manufacturers have confirmed the importance of a future-proof connectivity solution for motorcycles,” says Harry Krickl, Director of Sales, Motorcycles and Off-Highway in Continental’s Commercial and Special Vehicles business segment. “We’re well on the way to closing the gap between motorcycles and the internet, without having to depend on smartphones. This is the first step towards ensuring that motorcycles are ‘always-on’, that mobility on two wheels becomes really smart, and safety and ride comfort are noticeably increased.”
