Yamaha Reveals Autonomous Motorcycle-Riding Humanoid Robot.

Japanese motorcycle company Yamaha unveiled Motobot, a humanoid robot that can ride and handle a motorcycle at high speeds, at the 44th annual Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday.

It’s only a matter of time before robots do most of the things that we do ourselves right now, the machines have already established a strong footing in various industries and they’ll gradually be introduced in others as well. Yamaha calls it the Motobot and it’s capable of handling some of the fastest motorcycles available, off the top of my head I can think of a couple of scenarios where a robot speeding down the road that it shares with humans on a motorcycle might actually make sense. We want to apply the fundamental technology and know-how gained in the process of this challenge to the creation of advanced rider safety and rider-support systems and put them to use in our current businesses, as well as using them to pioneer new lines of business.” It may also prove to be very useful in patrolling streets to safeguard residents against crime, not only will that reduce the risk posed to human officials, but will also strengthen policing in the area.

R&D on the company’s autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot is underway, Yamaha aims to develop it further so that it can ride on an unmodified motorcycle (no safety gear to hold the robot in place) on a racetrack with speeds over 200 km/h.
