In a near distant future…

Taanmay takes control of the manual mode as they ride along the minor road.

Otherwise known as “Quantoriders,” this generation of riders embraces self-driving vehicles, with petrol engines replaced by electric hybrids powered by renewable energy sources due to the depletion of fossil fuels. Expressways and major roads are centrally managed by the road department, with speed limits and traffic regulated and coordinated by a Traffic AI system. Route to destination and speed variations during peak or non-peak hours are also managed by the system, marking an end to human-error accidents and traffic congestion. Expressways are equipped with dynamic charging or roadway charging infrastructure, allowing electric vehicles to charge while in motion and reducing reliance on traditional charging stations. Riders simply select their destination and preferred riding mode, whether it’s cruise, speed, or scenic routes.

Expressways are lane into slow, cruise, and speed lanes, with corresponding road usage charges determined by the chosen option. Motorists have the flexibility to adjust their lane selection at any point during their journey, while lane overtaking and splitting remain coordinated by the Central AI. All this is made possible without rider intervention. This automation allows the self-balancing and driven motorcycles, to enable riders to keep their hands and feet free until they reach minor roads, where manual control resumes. While some may question whether these advancements compromise the essence of riding, Quantoriders prioritise safety over thrill-seeking.

With human-induced accidents minimised, the necessity for personal protective gear is reduced, except for protection from the elements of nature. Motorcycles can now travel at faster speeds, subject to traffic conditions, but are limited by the capabilities of the rubber tires, which are centrally monitored to prevent accidents.

Drone vehicles and aerial highways are still in their infancy, with regulatory frameworks and widespread adoption yet to be fully established. Quantoriders harbour disdain for Drone Bikes due to their cumbersome design and ear-piercing screeching noise emissions, as well as their restricted range and the lengthy intervals required for recharging.

Spatial computing has rendered mobile computing obsolete, offering users customised information screens accessed through eye tracking and gestures, coupled with MMI (mine-machine interface) rather than traditional finger tapping. Weather forecasts, breaking news, social media updates, drive recordings, and location sharing are seamlessly integrated into the interface. Payment for lane usage options is facilitated through cryptocurrency. Additionally, border crossings are streamlined, with biometric systems and identification stored within the helmet visor facilitating seamless passage through checkpoints.
