Saroléa and Ghent-based ML6, experts in machine learning and artificial intelligence, have achieved a ‘first’ in the motorcycle world. The MANX7, the latest fully-electric model of the vintage motorcycle brand, will come equipped with ML6’s Waizu. While Waizu software was initially developed for a far-reaching optimization in industry processes, it is now being integrated into a motorized vehicle for the first time and aims to squeeze every last drop of autonomy and power to the benefit of the MANX7. Ground-breaking and 100% Belgian. Saroléa also intends to make the technology available to other manufacturers through a future platform.
Earlier this year, ML6 developed the predictive control platform Waizu that is entirely geared towards optimization of industry processes. The platform combines ML6‘s longstanding expertise in machine learning for predictive maintenance with pioneering research in the field of reinforcement learning and Google's latest technological developments in hardware and cloud. This revolutionary software was developed for industry processes and allows companies to optimize numerous processes.
Saroléa and ML6 joined forces to combine their respective know-how in electric powertrains and AI-driven process controls and applied those to the electric powertrain of the MANX7, Saroléa’s latest model. They use Google's Edge TPU, a processor that was specifically developed for artificial intelligence, and installed it on the engine itself.
