Self Balancing Unicycle
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Self Balancing Unicycle can considered as a non-linear control system similar to that of a two-dimensional inverted pendulum with a unicycle cart at its base. However, there are many higher-order effects involved in modelling the full system. It is a type of unicycle, that is an electric vehicle, that uses sensors, gyroscopes, and accelerometers in conjunction with an electric motor to assist a rider with balancing on a single wheeled vehicle. Some self balancing unicycles have been created which are self-balancing only in the forwards-backwards direction, and still need a human being to balance them from side to side.
