670.DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SELF-BALANCING MOTORCYCLE
Keywords:self balancing motorcycle, equations of motion, PID control, Matlab Simulink
AbstractIn this research paper, an investigation was conducted into the development of mechatronic systems for two-wheeled vehicles, with a primary focus on a self-balancing motorcycle. The self-balancing motorcycle, which is currently in the developmental phase, has a primary objective of enhancing traffic safety by eliminating the require-ment for external assistance. The study delves into its design, programming, and potential for further enhancement and eventual commercial utilization. Fundamental equations of bicycle dynamics were derived, and a PID controller, guided by MEMS sensor data, was employed for steering control. The paper encompasses the presentation of experimental tests and refinements to the feedback system, providing valuable insights into the system's overall performance. The research embarks on the intersection of technology, vehicle dynamics, and safety, laying the groundwork for future developments in these interconnected domains.
