Soft Motorcycle 360 is now Euro NCAP approved

DRI’s Soft Motorcycle 360 has received official approval for use in Euro NCAP testing.

A next-generation Powered Two-Wheeler (PTW) test target, the Soft Motorcycle 360 is a powerful solution to improve motorcycle safety. It features a cutting-edge design with multi-layered construction and unique rotating wheels that simulate a realistic Doppler effect for radar sensors.

This ensures precise recognition by vehicle sensor systems like cameras and LiDAR. Its modular, lightweight, abrasion-resistant rubberized material allows for quick assembly and reconstruction post-impact, reducing downtime and minimizing potential vehicle damage.

The Soft Motorcycle 360 has been accredited for use alongside AB Dynamics’ LaunchPad 80 target platform. Together, they can be utilized to conduct all Euro NCAP motorcycle based ADAS test scenarios, including:

  • Car to Motorcycle Rear Stationary (CMRs)
  • Car to Motorcycle Rear braking (CMRb)
  • Car to Motorcycle Front turn across path (CMFtap)
  • Car to Motorcycle oncoming (CMoncoming)
  • Car to Motorcycle overtaking (CMovertaking)

The LaunchPad 80, an approved PTW target platform since 2022, can safely conduct tests at speeds exceeding 80 km/h and braking at over 0.6g, surpassing Euro NCAP’s requirements. With exceptional stability and maneuverability, it facilitates ADAS and autonomous vehicle testing in complex scenarios involving motorcyclists and moped targets.
