Unicycle Dynamics and Stability 840022

Governing equations of motion for a unicycle with a rider are presented. The system is assumed to be moving on a flat horizontal surface. Two specific cases are investigated: straight-line rolling and stationary positioning. Criteria for stability are explored. It is shown that stability can be obtained through active pedal monitoring by the rider.
