Watch BMW's self-driving motorcycle accelerate, turn, and brake to a stop
- BMW Motorrad created a self-driving motorcycle designed to assist inattentive motorcyclists.
- This tech is similar to how Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in self-stopping cars or cars with lane assist aid drivers.
- While this model isn't for commercial use, the tech inside it could be used in future motorcycles. Check it out in the video above.
