Autonomous Motorcycle Developers
We Are Passionate About Motorcycles And Skilled Software Engineers
AutoRD are autonomous motorcycle developers. We are passionate about motorcycles and autonomy. We believe autonomating motorcycles will make them safer.
We began our journey into Autonomous Motorcycle Development when we started trading as AutoRD in early 2016; although the thinking and planning started well before that, when Dr Torquil Ross-Martin, then leading Tata Motor’s in-house autonomous driving development team, started thinking about the benefits of motorcycle autonomy.
Torquil soon became aware that, despite the huge amount of work going on in relation to automotive autonomy, and the large amount of funding pouring into it, practically no-one was working on Autonomous Motorcycle Development. This was important because it meant that the opportunity existed to establish a new business in this area before the big players got involved, and so both set the direction of the industry and develop a world-leading level of experience, which would become increasingly valuable.
How AutoRD are different
Perhaps uniquely, our AutoRD team combines in-depth knowledge from both the motorcycling and autonomous technology domains, enabling us to see both how the technology will benefit motorcycling and what must be done to develop and apply it.
How The Autonomy Will Improve Motorcycling
As dyed-in-the-wool motorcyclists, our AutoRD team don’t want to see robots take the pleasure out of biking, and rest assured they won’t. Instead, the technology will give us features we never dreamed of:
- Bikes you can summon when the sun comes out.
- Hand-of-God like rider assistance that will let you explore the full performance envelope without fear of crashing.
- Riderless taxis to cut through the urban queues.
- Radically improved styling and handling.
So what is the downside?
Well sadly and inevitably, motorcycles will get more complex and harder to fix. But just like a battle between your iPhone and your old Nokia or an F22 vs a Spitfire, this is a competition that those with the budget for the technology will win!
