Show notes

Shuko has a passion for motorcycles and takes Geoff on a (virtual) weekend ride on curvy mountain roads. What helps make their ride safer and more comfortable is ARAS, Bosch’s Advanced Rider Assistance System. Two of its developers, Yuki Oshida and Daniel Vetter, explain how they transferred ideas like adaptive cruise control from passenger cars to motorcycles. Turns out, 2-wheelers have peculiar physics! Victor Manuel Rivera knows that, too. He pushes the limits of the laws of physics during his motorcycle circus act: The Globe of Speed. No risk, no fun? Wrong, says Shuko. After an exclusive test ride with Daniel, she is convinced that electronic systems can mitigate some of the risks inherent to motorcycles without reducing the fun. Warning: this episode might evoke a passion for motorcycles in listeners as well!
