Amsterdam: Self-Driving Bicycles!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSZPNwZex9s

In the future you can probably cycle around Amsterdam hands-free and super safe! No problem texting en route or even working or having a beer on the way home! Or for human-free deliveries?

One reason for the self-guided bike is the hectic Amsterdam cycle traffic - so it will maybe save life and limb!

They had the decency to use beautiful Van Moof bikes for it though.
