BMW has unveiled two of its concept e-bikes, named BMW i Vision AMBY and Motorrad Vision AMBY. Electric bike BMW i Vision with pedals, which is equipped with a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 2000 Wh and has a range of 300 km.

The Motorrad Vision, devoid of pedals, will have a footrest like a traditional motorcycle. The two concept e-bikes have three speed levels that will adapt to different road types. The first speed limit is 25 km / h for cycle paths, and there is also an option of 45 km / h for urban roads. Outside the city, the top speed is 60 km / h on.

Moreover, the speed will be adjusted automatically according to geofences. This means that such bicycles will not go beyond the established speed limits in cities, so they will not be dangerous for pedestrians and other road users.

An additional safety feature on these bikes is radar, which will alert the rider with visual and audible cues when the vehicle approaches the bike from behind.

In the near future, thousands of Tesla owners will be able to test the FSD autopilot

Published

From next week, Tesla plans to give access to the FSD (Full Self-Driving) autopilot function to approximately 1,000 people a week. At the moment, only about 2,000 drivers can use FSD in general.

At the same time, as mentioned earlier, drivers will have to prove that they themselves drive well. Telemetry data from the last week and Tesla Insurance calculator will be used for estimation.

During the first days, only those drivers who will be assessed for the maximum 100 points will receive access. Tesla will then lower the entry threshold little by little, but it’s unclear how much.

Also remember that access to the FSD function, which is still in beta, costs $ 10,000. So not every Tesla owner will be able to try out the best autopilot available in a production car.
