This spring, Google is introducing the self-driving bicycle in Amsterdam, the world’s premier cycling city. The Dutch cycle more than any other nation in the world, almost 900 kilometres per year per person, amounting to over 15 billion kilometres annually. The self-driving bicycle enables safe navigation through the city for Amsterdam residents, and furthers Google’s ambition to improve urban mobility with technology.

Google Netherlands takes enormous pride in the fact that a Dutch team worked on this innovation that will have great impact in their home country.In this video you can see a self-driving bicycle which enables cyclists to do other things while they ride.
The bicycle can also come to you directly thanks to an app. This technology looks really amazing! It’s really a great idea, no?Sorry to tell you that but this video was totally fake! In fact it was an April fool’s video created by the special effects team of Google in the year 2018.
The main objective of this project was to show people that Google not only is one of the most innovative technological companies, but also one of the most fun companies in the world.
But the next video from Electricku is not a prank, this is a true self driving bike.Huawei engineers have now developed a self-driving bicycle that can operate even if it is unmanned.
The newly introduced bike can stand on its own even in complete balance even on the slimmest surfaces.After being injured in a bicycle accident, one of the Huwaei engineers, Zhihui Jun, came up with this innovative idea and became involved in the self-driving bike project.
