This paper concerns the definition and implementation of an interaction system for motorcycles. The system is a vehicle-to-driver communication system and a driver-to-infrastructure communication system, based on a smartphone core and a wireless Bluetooth medium. The system is devoted to increase the safety level of a motorcycle and it is constituted by a vehicle with a CAN bus, a compact embedded electronic implementing a CAN-to-Bluetooth gateway, a smartphone and a Bluetooth helmet. The driver-to-vehicle system is based on an audio interaction located at helmet level. The driver-to-infrastructure is represented by communication via a HTTP protocol. The vocal synthesis, the speech recognition, and the web gateway are resident on the smartphone. This work presents the general hardware and software architecture and some specific web-oriented implementation. An evaluation of the critical aspects of the system is also provided.

Abstract

This paper concerns the definition and implementation of an interaction system for motorcycles. The system is a vehicle-to-driver communication system and a driver-to-infrastructure communication system, based on a smartphone core and a wireless Bluetooth medium. The system is devoted to increase the safety level of a motorcycle and it is constituted by a vehicle with a CAN bus, a compact embedded electronic implementing a CAN-to-Bluetooth gateway, a smartphone and a Bluetooth helmet. The driver-to-vehicle system is based on an audio interaction located at helmet level. The driver-to-infrastructure is represented by communication via a HTTP protocol. The vocal synthesis, the speech recognition, and the web gateway are resident on the smartphone. This work presents the general hardware and software architecture and some specific web-oriented implementation. An evaluation of the critical aspects of the system is also provided.
