There are numerous gradations, from comfortable-slow to strong-dynamic. In extensive test phases, we put all these driving modes under the microscope and integrated them into our accident detection algorithm.
Until dguard was ready for the market, our test team covered more than 60,000 kilometres on race tracks and roads in Germany, Austria, Spain, Scandinavia, the USA and South Africa. In our in-house development and production, we work according to the strictest automotive standards. This way we can guarantee that dguard always works, even under the most extreme conditions.
dguard crash tests were carried out at DEKRA.
The independent testing organisation of DEKRA tested the retrofittable motorbike eCall system in April 2015, testing various accident scenarios at the Crash Test Centre in Neumünster to observe accident detection. In all scenarios, in which accidents with cars and other vehicles were simulated, the dguard technology was able to convince with its reliability: The system is crash-proof up to 300 G. In the meantime, dguard has reliably completed more than half a million kilometres on public roads worldwide.
Extensive test phases: Extreme sports and everyday life
Enduro athlete Paul Roßbach has been testing dguard in various stages of development since 2014 with the aim of making motorcycling safer.
The Enduro Junior European Champion tested the automatic emergency call for motorbikes under competition conditions and trained with the system to provoke extreme situations that would have been too dangerous or impossible on public roads.
The Berger family, the owner family of digades GmbH, as well as other test drivers from the dguard community, are still testing the system extensively on three continents.
Acceleration and braking behaviour, cornering positions and driving behaviour at high speed are measured. The measured values and test data obtained on the trips form a stable basis for dguard.
The algorithms of the system are constantly being developed to further improve dguard. Software updates ensure that your dguard is always state of the art and that your safety is permanently guaranteed.
What also distinguishes digades' dguard system from other emergency call apps are the additional functions. The dguard theft alert notifies you by sending a message to your smartphone as soon as the motorbike is moved without authorisation.
