Abstract

We propose a new mechanism of a unicycle. One feature of this robot is the shape of a wheel which is similar to a rugby ball. The other feature is that the body is separated into upper and lower parts. In this paper, we show the details of a mechanism of the robot, simple controller system, and some results of the performance experiment using designed controller. We present an experimental results that the robot can move straight and steer itself by proposed mechanism.
