Bicycle with Balancing Controller, Uneven Terrain – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Bicycle with Balancing Controller, Uneven Terrain

This is the model of an unmanned bicycle with a stability controller. The control torque is applied on the handlebar using the a gyroscopic sensory information which detects the bicycle's inclination from the upright position based on its roll angle.

The bicycle in this example travels through 3-D uneven terrain. The tire/ground interaction forces are calculated using the Fiala tire force model.

This model uses the MapleSim Tire Component Library
This model was created with MapleSim 2023.0
This model uses the MapleSim Ropes and Pulleys Library
