Honda has started working on taking the radar technology on motorcycles to a whole new level. The company is now working on a safety system that will see radar and stereo cameras working to make the ride much safer.

According to leaked patent pictures, the Japanese firm has developed a tech that will see radar equipment along with two stereo cameras. This tech is being developed on the Honda Africa Twin and will be used to power the adaptive cruise control. From the pictures, it is clear that the cameras are mounted just below the headlight, with rubber mounts. There’s also a gimbal-styled mount to absorb vibrations, as well as adjustments in pitch and yaw.
