Google is developing a riderless motorcycle

Google has created a robot motorcycle which doesn’t need a rider to work. The IT company wants to test it in real traffic conditions on the streets of California.

Let’s think about planes, high speed trains or even some cars. They could have a robot instead of a real driver. But why sould somebody build a self-riding motorcycle? Just because somebody can do this, would Google say.

Anyway, which could be the real purpose of this kind of bike? The world peace defenders say that it is built for military use. We don’t know that, but it is said that the technology which makes the bike able to lean without a rider comes from the military.

Anthony Levandowski is the engineer that coordinated the team which created the bike. He also named it „Ghostrider“. A not so good name, we think. He should have called it „Frankenstein“.
