Meet Flossie, Castrol lubricant’s robotic motorcycle test rider.
Meet Flossie, Castrol lubricant’s robotic motorcycle test rider. Able to be fitted onto any motorcycle or scooter, Flossie can ride almost any two-wheeler that’s strapped to a chassis dynamometer.
Castrol use Flossie to test a variety of lubricants for a wide range of motorcycle products. Like some of the best human riders, “It [Flossie] is equipped with a self learning mode to enable it to know the gear change pattern, clutch feel and throttle response of the bike – just like any rider would on their first outing on a new machine,” says Castrol. http://blog.motorcycle.com/2013/12/26/motorcycle-news/flossie-robot-can-ride-motorcycle-better-video/
