Motorcycle and pushbike helmet heads-up Display

The creators of the world’s first personal Heads Up displays have just created a powerful new feature – radar detection display.

Indeed, it's hard to argue against the MC2 not offering a degree of safety for motorcycle racing too - and it'd be handy to know your laps times as you're doing them so you know what's working on the stopwatch. It'd be more than handy to know how close the guy behind is and who it is too. For road riders, we've been mightily impressed with this idea since we first wrote about it. The addition of radar is an absolute no brainer for the sports motorcyclist and the addition of the datalogger is a godsend for the thinking sports motorcyclist. Read More

Siemens Automation and Drives and all the partners in the Arvika project recently demonstrated just how powerful these systems have become. Read More
