The Dynamics of Charles Taylor’s Remarkable One-Wheeled Vehicle
2008, vol. 13, no. 4, pp. 257-266
In the 1950s and 1960s, Charles F. Taylor designed and tested various prototype one-wheeled vehicles. These machines were stabilized and steered using gyroscopes. In this paper, a simple model of a one-wheeled vehicle is presented and analyzed. This analysis explains the ability of these machines to exhibit stable steady motions.
