Abstract

As any avid biker will tell you, motorcycle have a lot of advantages over cars – they use less fuel, accelerate faster, are more manoeuvrable, can be parked in more places, and don’t incorporate the weight of extra seating for passengers who are non-existent on solo commutes. As many other people will tell you, however, motorcycles also leave their occupants open to the rain and cold, and can potentially tip over and scatter those occupants across the road. It’s a proposed fully – enclosed two-passenger electric or IC engine motorbike that uses a gyroscopic stabilizing system.The goal of this project is to design and build a prototype self balancing bike for use as a teaching tool for someone learning to ride a bike and as a means for disabled person to ride a bike. The project consists of a research phase in which similar system have been investigated to help to determine sensible design approach and to establish appropriate design specifications; a design phase in which a prototype was designed to meet the aforementioned specifications and a construction phase.
