  • The Dutch cycle more than any other nation in the world.

  • Almost 900 kilometers per person.

  • But that also means we have 350,000 bike related injuries.

  • Now imagine, that we would make biking safer, smarter and easier...

  • by applying self-driving technology to a bike.

  • We taught our self-driving bike to figure out where it is...

  • what’s around it, what will happen next and what it should do.

  • We leaned on Google’s expertise in self-driving cars...

  • but we had to adapt the technology to work on a bike.

  • We decided to add two additional features.

  • First, you can request the bike to pick you up wherever you are.

  • And we developed a comfort mode...

  • Adjusting the pedals to a perfect resting position.

  • I think the self-riding bike could really give a boost to the economy...

  • because people could also work on their bicycle.

  • You work in your office, in your home, in your car.

  • You could even work on your bike.

  • I have so much more time. My kids love it.

  • Theyre just free, they can go anywhere they want. Anytime they want.

  • It’s amazing.

  • At the Fietsersbond we feel that this is the biggest invention since the invention of the bicycle itself.

  • At Google, we always put our users first.

  • With the launch of this bike, we believe we do that again.

The Dutch cycle more than any other nation in the world.
