a first of its kind in the world. In March 2014 Italy’s iconic motorcycle
manufacturer, Ducati had announced the introduction of the Multistrada D-Air
model, featuring a fully integrated, intelligent system of sensors wirelessly
connected to Ducati Apparel airbag jackets by Dainese.
it’s been revealed that the deployment of the airbag takes a mere 45miliseconds
(ms) to be deployed. In case of an accident, the jacket and vest will protect
the collar bone, the chest and back from injuries. In case of a direct impact
involving the bike, the moment there is a front wheel contact against an
obstacle, the front wheel starts to measure the deceleration within 5ms. Within 12 ms, the algorithm
detects a crash condition and within 25ms the system communicates with the
jacket, deploying the airbag in 45ms.
the expertise of both Ducati and Dainese, the intelligent passive safety system
uses sensors built into the Multistrada’s existing electronics to constantly
understand the vehicle’s dynamic situation and deploying only when subjected to
a genuine accident scenario. The Multistrada D-Air system completes the data
analysis and airbag deployment inside both the rider and passenger jackets in
just 45 milliseconds, considerably reducing the risk of injury upon impact.
