This project was funded by the Austrian Road Safety Fund. It aimed at seeking answers to road safety related
topics regarding e-bicycles and e-mopeds - specific research was performed on vehicle dynamics together with
subjective experience of riders. There were measurable vehicle specific differences, due to different vehicle
power management sensors, engine concepts and control units. A relevant output is that riding in a bend in
combination with a breaking manoeuvre asks for a moped-like handling technique. Another relevant experience
was that technology failure must be considered as safety critical. Building on the state-of-the-art knowledge, the
assessment of the recorded data, the interviews and observations during the test rides, a catalogue of road safety
measures related to e-bicycles was finally developed, which can be used as a guideline.
