Crash Detection Technology

Whether anyone talks about it or not the possibility of crashing is on every motorcyclist’s mind.

Historical statistics make this an ever present possibility. The US Department of National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that there were over 123,000 motorcycle accidents during 2008 resulting in 5,290 fatalities. A little more than half of these accidents involved a collision with one or more other vehicles. The rest were classified as single vehicle accidents involving the motorcycle colliding with the roadway or some other fixed object in the environment. In two thirds of these accidents the precipitating factor was a slide out or fall due to over braking or running wide on a curve due to excess speed or under cornering.

The key to surviving any accident is to get help as quickly as possible. When riding alone and an accident occurs, getting help often requires the motorcyclist to make the call for help. If the motorcyclist is incapacitated in any way or their cell phone is not available, critical help can be delayed.

Phantom Tracking’s patented crash detection technology allows the tracking device to sense conditions experienced in a crash and notify the monitoring center of a possible crash and its location. Once a crash notification is received by the monitoring center a live operator will call the motorcycle owner to determine if assistance is needed. If no answer is received the monitor center can dispatch emergency services to the location of the motorcycle.

Phantom Tracking pioneered motorcycle crash detection technology for motorcycles and is the only company to offer it. Combined with Phantom Tracking’s patented anti-theft tracking technology, Phantom is the only company to offer today’s motorcycle owners the safety and security they need.
