Default AI to protect us from cagers when filtering

Seems a large cage manufacturer has our safety in mind in future cage development.
I still believe the issue would be better resolved through proper training and re-certification to drive but I guess this could also help.

Interesting and yet I'm surprised that only one state in the USA, namely California allows filtering.

Well I guess Artificial is better then No in a lot of cagers cases

Yep filtering is not the done thing here ( well legally ), traffic is really not a problem with the exception of places like LA. With the incredibly dozy cagers here , you think you're lot is bad , its probably just as well. I do lane split here in OH when it is necessary to do so.

I'm sure car manufacturers will see the need for their autonomous vehicles to recognise all driving scenarios, especially if the lawsuits start coming in.

I was amazed at how well this worked in Sao Paolo when I visited. I was on a borrowed gn125 and cars drivers where literally saying sorry out the window, if they slowed the bike down, while moving to lane split in traffic jams. Bikes are everywhere and drivers are much more conscious of filtering.

according to the natives, cagers will not mess with bikers as there are so many of them, they take no shit and all stand up for each other, strangers or not
they say if a cage hits a bike, they are swarmed upon in seconds, and it's not like the cage can go anywhere in that traffic

Nothing wrong with adding more safety for the distracted cagers.

I love seeing the newer cages with the blind spot alert, when filtering I see those things lighting up when I approach the cages more and more. Now with PCP, there's plenty of newer cars out there with this technology.

Surely, if they're on bookface they will miss that warning as well, but at least it's a little extra until the real technology comes along, but.. it'll never be 100%

Noticed them aswell but if they don’t use the mirrors they’re useless.
