Liger Mobility from India are developing a gyro force technology making riding easy and safe. Also, it has a "Call" function.

If you’ve been on the tech front page, you might have heard about Honda’s Riding Assist-e, a small personal mobility technology which had a self-balancing multidirectional movement capability.

Now, an Indian based EV startup - Liger Mobility - have come up with a proprietary self-balancing gyro force technology for two-wheelers changing the dynamics in terms of safety and experience, without losing the fun aspect of riding one. Also, it has a “call” function that comes to you when you call for it. Fancy eh.

Motorcycle accidents are close to 30 times more than those of cars, and Liger Mobility is in an effort to minimize that as much as possible. Coming to change that very notion of two-wheelers being unsafe is this self-balancing technology that works to your advantage by making use of its gyroscopic stabilizer system. It makes riding easy and safe for new riders who may be intimidated by large, heavy motorcycles.

It promises to enhance the stability of the motorcycle on the move and also balances the bike when in stationery. Even after the rider unmounts the motorcycle, it will remain upright and always provide a positive feel for the rider. The technology works very well with the pillion rider on the scooter as well.

The prototype also comes with a voice command system that would park the scooter itself or even reverse from a parking spot with just a “call”. This function could come in handy in urban environments and may work via a dedicated app on a smartphone making use of IoT, saving loads of time in your urban commuting.

The makers are pretty confident about their technology and claim that it can be availed at just 10% of the scooter’s price (in this case, a Mahindra Duro that costs around $900). Meaning, you can equip your scooter with this safety tech for a puny $90. Now that is a hell of a bargain.

Honda also displayed the Riding Assist-e concept. Honda has not made use of a gyroscope or other mass-shifting devices. Instead, the front fork angle (rake) increases to widen the wheelbase and disconnecting the forks from the handlebar. Computer-controlled systems make tiny steering adjustments making the front wheel twitch left or right to keep the balance upright.

BMW Motorrad has also showcased its Vision Next 100, a motorcycle that is an entirely radical concept of the traditional machine on two wheels today. Even this German concept is a mad self-balancing motorcycle that makes the side stand become mundane and mute. Also, they have developed an autonomous 1200 GS that does all the riding on its own. Then there is Yamaha’s Motobot, a robot that rides a motorcycle.

While no official announcements have been made regarding having this tech making onto the production line, it is looking increasingly likely that they eventually will. Liger Mobility will be catering to the domestic markets, and plans to outsource the tech to other major manufacturers could also be on the cards.
