Motorcyclists and moped drivers are road users with a particularly high accident risk since motorcycle accidents are severe in nature, due to the relative minor protection of motorcyclists. Furthermore, today the field of driver assistance systems is mostly dedicated to the passenger vehicle and heavy goods vehicle sector. Driver assistance systems for Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs), which rely on onboard vehicle sensors, have not been not considered so far. In this paper we present first results of the European funded Marie Curie research project MYMOSA and especially the Integrated Safety work within its work plan. The objective of the Integrated Safety work package is the development of an integrated safety system capable to detect impending dangerous situations and accident scenarios. As a consequence of the proposed activities in these projects a long-term reduction of at least 20% of injuries and fatalities of motorcyclists is foreseen.
