Google introduces self-driving bike in the Netherlands

Here we are. Watching Google introducing self-driving bike in the Netherlands. When you live in the Netherlands you know how an important role a proper bicycle is playing in your life. Smart and safe bike takes you on a ride knowing what to do and it is doing it for you.

“The self-driving bicycle enables safe navigation through the city for Amsterdam residents, and furthers Google’s ambition to improve urban mobility with technology”, says Google Nederland. Watch the video below to see this in action.

Pretty well done Google but don’t you know that the real capital city of cycling is Groningen? In Groningen this would work also. If there is a next city in the Netherlands to be covered with this technology I think the best pick is Groningen.


Especially in the morning when you get on your bike and wish that you had some extra 20min to get ready for school or work, this self-driving bike would be your friend and saviour  (not that a current bike of yours without the self-driving function isn’t your friend already).

The first part might be just a fools day joke but the second part is not. Groningen is THE world cycling city.
