We have all seen motorcycle-riding robots in movies in the past. We could end up dealing with real ones in the future. Take the MotoBot for instance. It is an autonomous motorcycle-riding robot that is being developed by Yamaha. The goal is to develop a robot capable of riding an unmodified motorcycle on a racetrack at more than 200 km/h.
Developing such a robot poses lots of challenges. Controlling the complex motions of a bike at high speeds require a sophisticated robotic system. For now, this robot remains a work in progress.
