This Bike Riding Robot That Can Balance, Steer and Correct Itself

Japanese robot designer Masahiko Yamaguchi has created a robot that can balance, steer and correct itself while riding a fixed gear bike and breaks putting its feet on the ground.

Yamaguchi explains:

A feature of this robot is, it pedals the bike with its own feet, and keeps its balance just by using the handlebars. I think this is probably a world first.

There’s a control board in the backpack. That needed to have a high processing speed, so I made my own board using the SH7125 CPU core.

PID control is a classical control method. It’s used to calculate how far to turn the handlebars when the frame tilts. By calculating proportional, integral, and differential components for the tilt, and adding them, the system calculates how far to turn the handlebars when the frame tilts. Also, the robot needs to decide which direction to go in, so we use a remote control to instruct it.
