For the first time a Motorcycle Consortium dedicated to ITS issues has joined the ESV conference in Detroit. CMC members used the opportunity during conference to speak directly to US rule makers, associations and the industry about the specific requirements for motorcycles regarding ITS implementation. Many have visited the CMC booth in the exhibition area. Since US has just passed a ‘Notice of proposed rulemaking’ for ITS deployment mainly aimed at cars, the motorcycle industry took up the challenge to bring their issues to the attention of US officials and other stakeholders. The appearance of CMC in US was very well received.
Later this year, CMC will be present at the ITS World Congress in Montreal. For the first time a special session on motorcycles is supported by the consortium together with ACEM, the Association of European Motorcycle Manufacturers and other stakeholders.
