They will definitely, beat us! Look at the video, for a fraction of second it looks as a man is driving it. Really marvelous! Murata (Seisaku-kun) engineered by Murata Manufacturing is an absolute functioning of four types of sensors. Two gyro sensors keep an eye on angular velocity and inclination while a shock sensor perceives rough surfaces and an ultrasonic sensor detects barriers. A PC through a wireless LAN connection controls this two feet rider. It is capable of following pre-programmed paths with maximum speed of 30 inches per second and can easily be manipulated back and forth. What more it can even poise while at a complete stop. This might be world’s first bicycle-riding robot. For me it’s world’s perfect bicycle-riding robot.
