Honda has showcased the self balancing motorbike with out help of rider in Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas. The ‘Riding Assist’ technology helps the motorcycle to self–balance itself without the use of any gyroscope or any mass shifting devices.
The concept is simple: when the system is turned on, the front fork angle of the bike is increased by disconnecting the forks from the handlebars, which lengthens the bike's wheelbase. Once the wheelbase is increased, the system then uses minute steering inputs to keep the bike perfectly balanced.
The bike is also electronically programmed to follow its owner at a walking speed if required. There are a lot of self-driven cars in the automobile segment, but this is the first t self driving bike in world.
