This paper focuses on building a bicycle prototype which is can balance itself with the help of a reaction wheel. The bicycle prototype does not employ a rider for this task. This concept can be extremely helpful as a safety mechanism for future motorcycles wherein the rider can save himself from a crash, if he/she loses control over the motorcycle. The bicycle uses a controlling mechanism to prevent itself from falling on either sides in static condition. It uses an inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensor for detecting changes in the roll angle and reacts to maintain a constant vertical position. Reaction involves rotation of the reaction wheel by the motor which gets its input signal from a controller which works in conjunction with the sensor to analyze the data. Final aim is to build a prototype of the self-balancing bicycle and get an overview of the recent developments in the field of autonomous driving. © 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
