The devices use a Bluetooth microphone, universal voice recognition and an LED board that fits on a bike’s number plate.
Riders simply dictate their message through the microphone to the LED board which shows seven letters, but also scrolls so you can display a longer message.
The microphone uses a different signal to normal bluetooth intercom so it won’t interfere.
There is also a three-axis gyroscope accelerometer that will detect emergency braking and automatically translate it to the LED board as a warning to drivers behind.
However, let’s hope they spell “brake” correctly and not “break” as in the video!
MotoChat also includes an SOS function in the event of a crash.
The accelerometer detects lean angles of more than 67 degrees and interprets that as a crash.
The GPRS tracker will note the exact location and an associated app that works with any smartphone will send an SOS message with GPS location to a prerecorded number of your choice, so long as there is signal.
The person who receives the SOS can then alert emergency services at the touch of a button.
There is no subscription required for the service as there is with some other emergency tracking devices.
