The World’s First Bicycle-Riding Robot | Primer v2 Robot

Bicycle-Riding Robot


The PRIMER-V2 Bicycle-Riding Robot is a bipedal robot modified to ride a bicycle. Developed by Dr. Guero, a Spanish roboticist, it consists of a KHR3HV bipedal robot, a small bicycle, and a custom controller. The robot pedals with variable speed using its feet. Steering, akin to a normal bike, is performed by its hands and is remotely controlled by a human. Stability relies on the inertial centrifugal effect of the front wheel and a gyro aided by a PID controller for straight-line driving.

Capable of speeds up to 10 km/h, the robot navigates obstacles, makes turns, and is adaptable for various applications like search and rescue, delivery, and entertainment.

The PRIMER-V2 robot’s development marks a significant progress in robotics, demonstrating its capacity for complex tasks beyond walking or running. Its bicycling capability opens up possibilities in delivery, search and rescue, and entertainment. Thanks for joining us!
