Huawei’s list of autonomous vehicles does not include self-driving cars. The Chinese brand is also working on self-driving bicycles that can be easily overcome without riding.
Huawei engineers are currently working on a new Huawei motorcycle that will be able to easily balance the thin surfaces shown in the image below.
The motorcycle will come with other impressive features, including high-precision sensors on the body, built-in AI, and image recognition cameras. By combining all these features, it is possible for a bike to run without human interaction.
Zhihui Jun, head of Huawei’s self-propelled bicycle project, came up with the idea when he suffered an injury from a regular motorcycle. Because of this he was able to work on a self-driving bicycle with his team of engineers. They combine an autonomous control system, a perspective sensor network, a chip that acts as the brain of the system and provides the required power of computing.
The bike started with a CAD render and later engineers added two large brushless motors and steering gear to the physical prototype. Next, the team added an RGBD depth camera, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and even a lidar sensor.
The bike is equipped with a satellite-like control module to maintain its balance.
The car runs on a lithium battery that can last for 2 to 3 days at full charge. It is located below the battery setup set.
Huawei’s self-propelled motorcycle is still in use, meaning it has not been completed. But given how close it is to completion, it won’t be long before it hits the market.
