To commemorate BMW’s centennial year, the company has just introduced a number of concept vehicles to envision the future of smart transportation. The smart concept motorcycle called Motorrad Vision Next 100 is undoubtedly the star of the event. Its streamlined-futuristic and truly smart design concept will enable its riders of any skill level to ride safely without any protective gears according to the automaker.
It’s equipped with self-balancing system that keeps the bike in upright position even in still or in motion. There’s no built-in control panel on the motorbike, but instead an integrated visor that would act as the rider’s smart display.
“Information is exchanged between rider and bike largely via the smart visor,” BMW said in a statement. “This spans the rider’s entire field of view and provides not only wind protection but also relevant information, which it projects straight into the line of sight as and when it is needed.”
The control panel information would not be needed all the times according to BMW, the Motorrad and other Vision Next 100 vehicles would be equipped with advance self-driving technology.
BMW believes also that the future of transportation is electric, thus. making the Vision Next 100 vehicles as “zero emissions” vehicles.
The other concept vehicles that have been unveiled includes a 20-feet long and steering wheel-less Rolls-Royce that is autonomously driven by an AI named Eleanor. There’s also a partly-transparent Mini concept that’s designed mainly for car-sharing purposes. This Mini is also autonomous and can be called anytime via an app, somehow would work possibly like a futuristic Uber.
