Piaggio develop new sensor technology

Radars and sensor tech seems to be all the rage nowadays, and Piaggio are looking to take it pretty seriously with their latest announcement.

So, what on earth is it? Well, founded in 2015 by the Piaggio group, Piaggio Fast Forward (or PFF for short) has been created solely to focus on tech, such as smart behaviour implementation in robots, alongside custom radar sensors for bikes.

Yes, the new technology is not just for motorcycles and scooters, but also for consumer and business robots too, which sounds pretty futuristic, if you ask us. They’re doing this with innovative sensor technology, which has been supplied by PFF, including everything from 4D imaging to their very own robots. This is all in association with Vayyar, who are a global leader in 4D imaging radar – they’re the ones who developing the sensor package, alongside the Radar-on-Chip.

Like we’ve seen on a host of other machinery from the likes of BMW, Ducati and KTM over the past year, expect to see some exciting stuff coming out of Noale in the next few years. The fact that it’s a separate branch of Piaggio, which also owns the Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Vespa brands, alongside the commitment to work with Vayyar means that there could be some seriously exciting and innovative stuff on the way.
