Recently BMW presented the self-driving motorbike on the test circuit in Miramas, southern France. Over the past two years, a team led by dipl.-ing. Stefan Hans worked on technology, which ultimately has to be applied to ordinary motorbikes. In this way the technique will serve as an aid to reduce the number of accidents and make motorcycling safer and more comfortable and to increase driving pleasure. The motorbike drives, accelerates, steers, slows down and stops independently on the curvy circuit, as can be seen in this video.
