Huawei unmanned bike presented

According to Design Boom, Huawei is working on a new self-driving vehicle that is not a car, but … a bicycle. Yes, a real two-wheeled bicycle for adults.

Zhihui Jun, one of Huawei’s development engineers, came up with the idea after being injured in a bicycle accident. To create an unmanned bike, the team had to equip it with an automatic control system with a whole set of sensors, cameras and a fairly powerful hardware platform. In addition, the engineers had to implement a set of algorithms for the perception of the traffic situation and vehicle control. Cameras and sensors recognize obstacles, and artificial intelligence technologies allow you to respond to situations without human intervention.

The engineers first started modeling the bike in a computer-aided design system, adding a number of details that made it possible to turn it into an unmanned vehicle. They installed two large brushless motors and a steering system, and then added a camera to determine scene depth, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a laser rangefinder. The bike uses a model 6S lithium battery for about 2-3 hours, and the main computing unit, using the Huawei Ascend 310 as an AI processor, is located directly under the seat, above the rear wheel.

Also, the bike is equipped with a balancing system that processes information about the slightest inclinations and keeps the bike in an upright position, and the rear wheel rotates directly from the motor without the help of pedals.

The bike has already been tested, confirming that it can work as intended by the developers.
