ABSTRACT This article presents the nonlinear dynamics and the posture stabilization control scheme for the single-wheeled pendulum robot (SWPR). Considering the maneuverability of SWPR, the steering is realized through the control for the inertia pendulum (IP) installed horizontally on the middle part of robot body. The feature of the control system modeling consists in a technique for which the posture stabilization control design is based on the parameterization of the dynamic interactions (DIT) between the lateral dynamics, the longitudinal dynamics, and the rotational dynamics. Simulation results showed the feasibility of the SWPR model and the control algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the novel design, implementation and control of a single-wheel mobile robot that can balance by using air power from ducted fans. All of the motions of the single-wheel mobile robot are actuated by air power instead of motor torques. Using air power allows to reduce the total weight of the robot. The complementary sensor fusion algorithm is introduced to estimate the angle correctly. After several design and development, the robot is tested for balancing in the roll direction and yawing motion. In addition, the balancing control of the robot on a single rope is tested to evaluate the control performance.
