Okay, it’s not a car, but this makes it even more impressive. The company Yamaha designed a robot called Motobot, which can drive a motorcycle. Engineers have set themselves the goal to teach the robot to drive a motorcycle with such skill that can beat a professional motorcycle racer, the nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi.
Unlike the technologies used at the time in the self-governing car technology developed by Yamaha-oriented management of the ordinary motorcycle, designed for people. Given data on speed, engine speed, the position of the motorcycle, etc., Motobot will manage the machine using the handle 6 – steering wheel, gas, front and rear brake, clutch and switching speeds. Sensors, satellite navigation and machine learning methods will enable the robot to choose the best route for traffic along the route.
