Yamaha Motor's latest development is MOTOROiD, a motorcycle prototype that listens to its owner's commands.
Yamaha’s new reference vehicle MOTOROiD is here to bring Kando – a Japanese word that sums up the feeling of deep satisfaction and intense excitement when someone encounters something of exceptional value. Being a creation of Japan, MOTOROiD is a technological masterpiece that envisions the future of the motorcycle. The prototype’s main focus is on creating a symbiotic relationship between the owner and their machine in a way where the machine understands and reacts to the owner’s commands, just like a living being. Alongside the impressive demonstration of AI that lets users control MOTOROid and its motion, an Active Mass Center Control System or AMCES is also put to test, that helps in self-balancing the motorcycle via the chassis and rear wheel.
