BMW's Riderless Motorcycle



A self-driving motorcycle sounds - if we’re being blunt - insane. But lucky for all of us, BMW’s new riderless motorcycle isn’t designed to hit public streets. This creepy looking model has been created solely for safety research, and we’re all for that.

BMW’s motorcycle division recently showed off their self-driving prototype (a converted BMW R 1200 GS) and the model can accelerate, navigate curves, and brake all on its own. BMW’s team has been working on the prototype for more than two years, and their efforts are not going unnoticed. Safety is, and will always be, a major concern in the motorcycle industry - which is why, we imagine, the manufacturer has stepped up to the plate to help tackle major safety issues. The self-driving model was designed to test out technology that will help motorcycles have more stability in critical riding situations. Just as modern vehicles are incorporating automatic braking and lane keep - BMW is trying to figure out if similar features could work on motorcycles. Adding these car-like features could be a challenge, because as we know, braking suddenly on a motorcycle is a lot different than braking in a vehicle.

BMW’s main goal for the prototype isn’t to create a fully automated motorcycle, because what’s the point in that? They are aiming to study the bike and to integrate what they learn into safety and driving systems for human-driven bikes. It seems like there’s a long way to go when it comes to the prototype, but we are interested to see the research that comes from this fascinating bike.

Check out a video of the prototype in action below.
