MOTOBOT – Yamaha’s autonomous motorcycle-riding robot

SRI International and Yamaha are developing MOTOBOT, the first autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot.

MOTOBOT is designed to ride like a person to aid in the development of future motorcycles, and help push the limits of design, performance, and safety.

The secondary goal of MOTOBOT is to beat MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi’s lap times around a racetrack.

A video of MOTOBOT in action is posted below.
