BMW Breaks the Ice With an Autonomous BMW R1200GS

Stunning video with autonomous BMW R1200GS

The future is closer than we might think. The German manufacturer just released a video of an autonomous BMW R1200GS Adventure. That’s something you don't see every day. The bike in the video knows its way around the corners and can stop by itself. This is what we call a well educated R1200GS. 

The project is called “Connected Ride”. Here’s what BMW is telling us about it.

"How can we make motorcycling even safer?  We know automation is part of your motorcycle safety. To enable us to further develop vehicle dynamics control systems, we conduct intensive research with the aid of prototypes and measure and collect data. The self-propelled motorcycle is one such prototype – but we are not forcing autonomous driving as such. The aim is to integrate dynamic control programs into the motorcycle that can show you the best and safest driving line around an obstacle at an early stage. Of course, the responsibility of riding should not be taken away from you, but an action recommendation can increase your safety. A corresponding control system could offer even more stability in a critical riding situation."
