The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
The bicycling robot raising his arm after stopping
A Japanese researcher in artificial intelligence has developed a robot that can ride a bicycle. The robot rides it just like a human would: His legs turn the pedals and he uses his arms to steer with the handlebars and maintain balance. When he comes to a stop, he puts his feet on the ground. Currently, remote control is used to instruct the robot where to go. His creator would like to make the robot smart enough to ride on his own with no input from a human. The robot currently rides a fixed gear bike. Maybe he'll get a bike with a derailleur soon.
