BMW’s Self-Driving Motorcycle Could Help Keep Bikers Safe

The folks in BMW Motorrad's engineering department believe self-driving technology can not be limited only to cars. To prove this, the company showcased a concept of this technology on the BMW R1200 GS.
When one thinks of autonomous driving, one typically thinks about cars. There, the bike drove off, accelerated, drove through the winding test track and then came to a stop, entirely on its own.
Although self-driving auto technology has the potential to save millions of lives on an annual basis (despite a handful of unfortunate incidents), it's arguably not the form of transportation that poses the biggest risks to riders. The best part: the tech powering the motorcycle could one day keep bikers safer on the road. However, the ability of the bike to drive, turn and lean, without a rider, is simply astonishing.

This BMW project is meant to help the company invent safety technology that will make motorcycling safer for riders of the future. It will be tested to discover more about risky situations and the appropriate safety tech to support the ride in those. But how would you handle a riderless motorcycle?
Although, an entirely autonomous bike could be a pretty cool idea for some of the same reasons that semi-autonomous cars are cool. So you could pull up to your place of work, get off the bike and tell it to go find a spot, just like many vehicle concepts of today. This autonomous motorcycle is a BMW Motorrad GS R1200 adventure bike, and its panniers aren't filled with riding gear and clothing; rather they are filled with all sorts of tech allowing this bike to start from a stop, ride around corners and curves, and stop again without a human sitting atop the bike.
