Integrated Report 2021(For the year ended December 31, 2020)

LMW—Next-Generation Mobility DevelopmentYamaha Motor’s product range includes the Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) category—situated between automobiles and motorcycles—and the Company is developing next-generation mobility by applying and adapt-ing its LMW technology. Our mobility proposals aim to improve on the shortcomings of motorcycles—vulnerability to changes in the environ-ment and outside interference, the possibility of falling over, and the required skills to ride properly—while leveraging their advantages of small size, minimal road and parking space requirements, a small environmental footprint, and their ability to quickly navigate urban areas. In addition, while not to the same extent as automobiles, our next- generation mobility vehicles are equipped with a simple cabin, are self-standing thanks to automatic control technology, and can lean through turns like a motorcycle. It goes without saying that no special skills are required to ride or operate these vehicles. The automatic attitude control systems governing their self-standing and leaning capabilities are being developed using the latest model-based systems engineering (MBSE)* methods as well as the technologies and know-how acquired through the development of MOTOBOT—an autonomous motorcycle-riding robot capable of circulating a racetrack at high speed—and MOTOROiD—a proof-of-concept model equipped with artificial intelligence.* Model-based systems engineering (MBSE): Systems engineering utilizing modelsOur Four Core Competencies for Creating Next-Generation MobilityOur four core competencies are our platform for creating mobility that brings greater happiness. We are advancing the development of next-generation mobility by fully applying all of our competencies as well as ensuring seamless coordination between them.MOTOBOTMOTOROiDMBSE Approach for Next-Generation MobilityVehiclesDo not fall overChassis targetsChassis component targetsActuator targetsComponent targetsComponent testingSubsystem testingVehicle testingControl targetsPowertrain targetsSubsystemsComponentsStepwise creation approachStepwise refinement approachRequirements analysisFunctional designLogical designPhysical designPowertrainsElectronic ControlManufacturingChassis and Hulls39Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
