Digital rearview mirror to improve visibility and orientation in public traffic
While motorcycle safety systems are continuously improving thanks to new technologies, progress in the development of rearview mirrors has stagnated. The manufacturers still equip their motorcycles with mirrors that function in the same state of innovation as those that had to be installed on the vehicle mid-19th century. Only a handful of companies make use of this potential but ignoring the fact that motorcycle rearview mirrors still have a huge blind spot.
REAR is an upgradeable system that addresses this problem and can even be installed by laypeople thanks to its modular structure. It supports the driver in potentially dangerous situations and thus increases road safety.
