The CES 2017 is underway in Las Vegas, USA. It has been a center point for companies to showcase their latest innovation. We have seen lots of new products, some of which really are mind blowing, like Kingston 2TB Flash Drive, Asus ZenFone AR, and Honda’s new motorcycle with the new feature called “ Honda Self Riding Assist ”.
You guys might have heard about many companies who make self-driving cars, but this time Honda has made a self-driving motorcycle. Not only self-driving, this motorcycle could balance itself, without any help from the rider.
Actually, Honda borrowed the balance control technology from the UNI-CUB personal mobility device, which was also showcased at the CES 2017.
However, this is only a prototype concept of the bike. There is no guarantee that it will show up in the market soon. Though it’s merely a concept bike, but it shows how the Honda’s investment in robotics can have benefits in its vehicles.
The experimental motorcycle by Honda moved at speeds of less than three miles per hour, something that is required while pulling out of a garage or stopping at a street light.
The bike also seems capable of steering adjustments left and right without losing the balance. As the motorcycle was moving at the speed of 2 or 3 miles per hour, it looked like someone’s pet following its master.
The concept of Honda motorcycle is appreciable, however, this concept might not be out soon. Nevertheless, Honda showed the future of the motorcycle.
