You say you want more. Elevators that wait for you.
Trains, planes on time. And, streetlights that keep traffic flowing.
A whole city masterminded to move in synchronicity.

That's smart. But we're looking beyond smart,
and we want to give you more. More to love. More to experience.
More to drive your excitement.

Our fun is bringing you the technology for your fun.

We're bringing a new edge to smart societies, and that edge liberates you and expands your potential.

The Yamaha Motor booth, under its theme ”Expanding the possibilities of mobility with advanced technology,” will showcase the exciting results of Yamaha Motor’s research and development through demonstrations of control, autonomous-driving and AI technologies. In addition, Yamaha Motor hopes to meet new partners during the tradeshow and explore opportunities for collaboration in technological innovation and new business development.

Exhibit Lineup


Motorcycle using AI to sense rider characteristics for autonomous driving - Offering an all-new Kando* experience, this proof-of-concept model employs artificial intelligence in a new form of personal mobility that functions harmoniously with the rider. MOTOROiD senses its rider's biometrics, movements, etc. to interact with the person like another living creature as it transports the rider autonomously at low speed. By undertaking challenges such as MOTOROiD, Yamaha is developing advanced technologies that will translate someday into all-new value for customers.
*Deep satisfaction and intense excitement experienced when encountering exceptional value

- Autonomous motorcycle-riding robot -

This autonomous motorcycle-riding robot combines the latest in motorcycle and robotics technologies based on unprecedented research and development. Operating like a rider without any fundamental modification to the motorcycle, MOTOBOT can ride around a racetrack at high speed. The next goal is to safely exceed 200 kilometers per hour and then challenge MotoGP star Valentino Rossi to a battle of lap times. The underlying technologies and knowledge gained with MOTOBOT are expected to yield new value in Yamaha Motor's existing businesses and pioneering new businesses as well.

06GEN Automated Public Personal Mobility
- Last-mile multi-person autonomous mobility system -

Envisaged for use in an environment shared with pedestrians covering a few kilometers, the 06GEN is a new-generation last-mile mobility system that provides safe, comfortable and convenient on-demand low-speed mobility autonomously. Designed to invigorate personal mobility in towns, resorts, etc., the 06GEN uses road image-recognition technology integrated with a cloud-based server. Low-cost and highly scalable, it is expected to be incorporated in Mobility as a Service (MaaS) initiatives using web application programming interfaces (APIs).

- Industrial drone with coaxial rotors for efficient spraying -

Combining coaxial rotor technology with the latest weight-reduction technology, the YMR-01 offers high spraying performance, ease of use and reliability to meet the demanding requirements of today's farmers. Two of its six rotor axes (on left and right) use vertical coaxial rotors for a total of eight rotors to create ideal downward air currents regardless of travel direction. Spraying nozzles placed near these coaxial axes achieve consistent agrochemical application down to crop roots.

- Industrial unmanned helicopter for highly precise spraying

In addition to offering all the features of existing unmanned helicopters, the FAZER R high-end industrial-use unmanned helicopter boasts "Turn Assistance." The new technology realizes improved controllability and spraying performance by turning to maintain fixed spacing for spraying, holding evenly spaced flying paths, and maintaining flying speed. Operated simply by turning the spraying switch on or off, this new function achieves improved spraying accuracy without relying on the operator's flying skill.
