Yamaha India's concept bike, Motoroid was on display at the Auto Expo in Delhi. The bike is the first of its kind in the subcontinent.
It is equipped with high-precision balance control via artificial intelligence and autonomous technology - AMCES. Active Mass Center Control System or AMCES is the technology that stabilizes two-wheeled vehicles by using electronics to actively control the chassis itself and constantly optimize the vehicle's attitude. It can sense its own state and adjust its center of gravity accordingly to stand up off its kickstand and remain upright unassisted.
The bike can recognize its owner and move towards the person, as well as react based on its rider's actions with its human-machine interface (HMI).
