Kawasaki Is Developing A "JARVIS" For Motorcycles

Written By:

Kawasaki is working on an Artificial Intelligence (AI), that would allow the rider to communicate with the motorcycle and adapt to different driving conditions.

The AI will be able to converse with the rider and, adjust the bike's electronics to the rider's desires and skills.

Kawasaki says its AI will use a technology called the "Emotion Engine" to interpret a rider's emotions, and maybe even develop its own personality.

While this may sound like it's from a sci-fi movie, the Emotion Engine is already being put to use in the real world. The Emotion Engine was developed by a company called Softbank, a telecommunications company based in Japan.

Softbank and Aldebaran Robotics joined hands to create a product called Pepper, the first ever robot capable of reading human emotions.

The technology is still in its early stage, but Softbank is always welcoming third-party developers to work with its AI. Kawasaki certainly looks like they're interested in it.

Kawasaki isn't the only company trying to get its hands on the AI. Last month, Honda had announced its plans to experiment on Emotion Engine for vehicles. It is still unclear if that also includes motorcycles.

Yamaha is taking a completely different approach to this with its rider robot, Motobot.
