Unicycle robot is a non-linear, unbalance system that has the less number of point contact to the ground, therefore it is a best platform for researchers to study balance control and motion. This paper focuses on the dynamic modeling and control of unicycle robot. A coupled nonlinear system dynamics is considered for the controller design. Two different controllers are proposed – integral LQR for pitch dynamics and integral sliding mode for roll dynamics. Simulations performed on MATLAB/SIMULINK platform proved the effectiveness of the proposed controllers.

Unicycle robot is a non-holonomic, non-linear, static unbalance system that has the minimal number of point contact to the ground, therefore it is a perfect platform for researchers to study motion and balance control. This paper focuses on the dynamic modeling of unicycle robot. Two concepts used for modeling unicycle robot are: reaction wheel pendulum and inverted pendulum. The pitch axis is modeled as inverted pendulum and roll axis is modeled as reaction wheel pendulum. The unicycle yaw dynamics is not considered which makes derivation of dynamics relatively simple. For the roll controller, sliding-mode controller has been adopted and optimal methods are used to minimize switching-function chattering. For pitch controller, a Linear Quadratic Regulator controller has been implemented to drive the unicycle robot to follow the desired velocity trajectory. More »»
