MOTA (Motorcycle Operator Training Assessor) is a new training/testing system developed for motorcycle training.

This is a joint development project carried out by Temporal Images and DVExperts International. The development of this system has been under way since 2005.

A pre-production version of the system was recently presented at the FIM ERTS 2007 Symposium held in Frankfurt from the 29th of May to the 1st June 2007.


MOTA is a development of the current testing procedure used in Victoria. It implements a similar approach to rider competence by checking a rider's ability to execute braking, swerve and cornering manoeuvres.
MOTA employs a self-contained sensor package mounted on the motorcycle, a light control box and a Tablet PC running custom application software to substantially automate the testing procedure.

In operation, an automated and randomly selected sequence of 7 test manoeuvres must be executed by the trainee. Each manoeuvre is processed and assigned a pass or fail.

Processing of the tests is performed without any operator input in order that the results are unbiased. A summary document is generated outlining the results for all the tests performed.
