The incorporation of IMU sensors enables the ECU or the onboard computer of a motorcycle to track its position with respect to the coordinate system using dead reckoning.”

IMUs are electronic devices that measure and report parameters such as a motorcycle’s specific force, angular velocity, and the changes in the magnetic field that surrounds the motorcycle or specific parts of the motorcycle. The adoption of IMUs in super-sport motorcycles enables the dynamic orientation of calculations for end-use.
