Self-driving scooter to save riders from self-driving cars

So, in an effort to allow autonomous vehicles to be exposed to motorcycles in realistic conditions, without putting human riders at risk, British company AB Dynamics has been developing a riderless motorcycle.

AB’s self-driving scooter executes a quick overtaking move on a self-driving car

The bike itself is a BMW C1 scooter, chosen for its automatic transmission, ABS system, and rain-busting roof structure, which serves as a handy place to mount various sensors. It’s been fitted out with an on-board robot controller, radio control software, GPS and other sensors that allow its movements to be pre-planned using AB’s autonomous vehicle software.
