The goal of this project is to design and build a prototype self balancing bicycle for use as a teaching tool for someone learning to ride a bicycle and as means for a disabled person to ride a bicycle who would otherwise not be able to do so. The project consists of a research phase in which similar systems have been investigated to help determine a 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, in which the prototype was built and tested.
