Yesterday Google released this short video explaining the concept of the self-driving bicycle.
1. Google Self Driven Bicycle
Now imagine if we would make biking safer, smarter and easier by applying self-driving technology to biking.
Call the bike to pick you up.
We tell our self-driving bike to find out where it is, what’s around it, what will happen next and what it should do.
We leaned on Google’s expertise in self-driving cars, but we had to adapt the technology to work on a bike. .
2. How it will work
We decided to add two additional features. First, you can request the bike to pick you up wherever you are and we developed a “comfort mode,” adjusting the pedals to a perfect resting position.
“I think the self-riding bike could give a boost to the economy because people could also work on their bicycle. You work in your office. You work in your home. You work in your car. You could even work on your bike.”
“I have so much more time. My kids love it. They’re just free. They can go anywhere they want, any time they want. It’s amazing.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.
