- In order to bring people new experiences of Kando,* this experimental machine employs artificial intelligence and explores the feasibility of concepts for creating new forms of personal mobility in which the rider resonates harmoniously with machine. MOTOROiD’s development concept was an “Unleashed Prototype,” and it is capable of recognizing its owner and interacting in other capacities like a living creature. By undertaking these kinds of development challenges, Yamaha is aiming to acquire technology for creating new value for our customers.
- mobility stemming from motorcycles, this Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) vehicle has two wheels front and rear and was developed under the concept of “Half-Sized Mobility.” The MWC-4 is powered by an electric motor equipped with a range-extender and uses attitude-control technology, giving it a ride that feels like nothing else and a level of comfort not found with a conventional motorcycle. This is all expressed with styling inspired by the features of both motorcycles and musical instruments.
CROSS HUB CONCEPT
- This autonomous motorcycle-riding robot combines the latest in motorcycle and robotics technology, and is helping pioneer previously unexplored realms of motorcycle R&D. Focusing on operation of the machine from a rider’s standpoint without making any fundamental modifications to the motorcycle itself, MOTOBOT is now capable of riding at high speeds around a racetrack. The project goals set for 2017 were to clear the milestone of hitting over 200 kilometers per hour on a racetrack and to challenge MotoGP star Valentino Rossi to a battle of lap times. The complex underlying technologies and knowledge gained from the MOTOBOT project will be applied toward creating new value in our existing businesses as well as toward pioneering new businesses.
Honda Riding Assist-e
- The Honda Riding Assist-e is an experimental motorcycle featuring Honda’s unique balance control technology, developed through its humanoid robot research. The motorcycle automatically balances itself using an assistive mechanism derived from robotics technology, for ultra low-speed situations that require the rider’s attention to balance, such as traffic jams or starting and stopping.
By the motorcycle balancing itself, touring and motorcycle life is made easier, and more fun, without sacrificing the fun of riding. The Riding Assist-e is powered by e-Drive, an environmentally friendly power unit. This model marks a step towards realizing Honda’s 2030 vision of “enjoying the freedom of mobility” and “a carbon-free society.”
