Motorcycle Research Group
The Motorcycle Research Group was born from a history in transportation research, concern about the increasing numbers of motorcyclist fatalities and injuries, and the excitement of a large number of VTTI engineers, staff, researchers, and family who are riders. The group focuses on riders and their machines while considering other factors in the surrounding transportation system. Group researchers recently completed the first large-scale naturalistic driving study of motorcycles, the aim of which was to explore motorcycle crash causation and develop crash countermeasures.
