Vélo autonome

💼 porté par peng zhihui


An engineer working for Chinese tech giant Huawei has shown off a prototype self-driving vehicle, but it's swapped four wheels for two: It's a bicycle, capable of keeping itself upright on even the smallest of surfaces.

"This is one of the most hard-core projects I have done recently," writes Zhi "David" Huijun of the XUAN-Bike project, which was brought to our attention by Designboom. "The development process took four months intermittently (although basically I was only available on weekends), but I encountered a lot of pitfalls during the period."

That project: An autonomous bicycle, upgraded with two brushless motors, a steering system, a lithium battery originally developed for model aircraft, and a computing system linked to a sensor package made up of depth-sensing camera, accelerometer, gyroscope, and LIDAR. Control is provided through a combination of a control computer dubbed Atlas Pi and a control unit based on an Espressif ESP32 microcontroller.
