  1. How about this?
    Motorcycle-riding robot throws down gauntlet to Valentino Rossi

    I'd be a bit more impressed if it didn't still have training wheels fitted, but it's still a pretty tricky task, to program a 'bot to ride a motorbike.

  2. Could we invite Motobot to explain counter steering in a clear scientific way? Probably has a better grip on the actual physics than even Rossi!

  3. MOTOBOT Ver.1 (Technology exhibit)
    This is an autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot built around a fusion of Yamaha's motorcycle and robotics technology. R&D is currently underway with the goal of developing the robot to ride an unmodified motorcycle on a racetrack at more than 200 km/h. The task of controlling the complex motions of a motorcycle at high speeds requires a variety of control systems that must function with a high degree of accuracy. 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.
