SRI teamed with Yamaha Motor Company to create MOTOBOT, a humanoid robot capable of operating a motorcycle with the goal of exceeding a human’s riding ability–with little or no modifications made to the vehicle.

MOTOBOT brought together SRI’s expertise in developing humanoid robots with Yamaha Motor’s technology for motorcycles and industrial robots. The project pushed boundaries including visualizing data about human motorcycle operation, and technology for machine position recognition such as high-precision GPS and sensor fusion.

MOTOBOT uses machine learning to make its own decisions regarding the ideal line to take around a racetrack while pushing and adapting to the limits of a given motorcycle’s performance.
