You ever see that film The Terminator? Where machines rise up against humanity? Check out this video from Yamaha of the latest step in the factory’s Motobot project.
The any-bike riding bolt-on robot’s team has been tasked with using the latest tech and a combination of learning AI to make a bot that can be bolted onto any bike (in this case, an R1) and lap any track as quickly, if not quicker, as Valentino Rossi manages on the same machinery.
It’s still a fair few seconds off the pace of the nine-times world champion, but it’s a helluva lot closer than it was a few months ago.
