The popular automobile industry ‘BMW’ has revealed the newly made autonomous motorcycle. In a video made available online, the firm official was seen running a practical test on the to determine its overall performance.
BMW as one of the top producers of transport vehicles including motorcycles in the world has dropped a proof that the idea for autonomous vehicles is not far from us. The firm had earlier dropped a video detailing the features of their future meant for private use.
The newly made has a similar look to that used by the courier service agents for delivering of parcels or the police patrol team. In other words, such a vehicle could serve a similar purpose without any human riding it.
The motorcycle is meant for research purpose, hence; it may not be available for commercial purpose anytime soon, according to officials. According to Stefan Han, a graduate engineer, the intention behind the self-riding is to improve on the safety systems of the future motorcycles & its comfort, not to have a fully-automated-autonomous on the road.
Though the officials believe the performance will enable them to acquire the necessary ideas on how to improve on its future models for the comfort of the riders and for their safety, the has showed how possible it can be to have driverless vehicles on the road.
The difference between the and the existing ones with human rider is the just the control method, in appearance they have similar look. The ability to start running, accelerates, decelerate, and come to a smooth stop, illustrates how perfect the control is functioning.
It may not be a bad idea to have such motorcycles on the road, but the firm seems to be very careful in making such promise anytime soon.
