The Self-Balancing Sideways Segway


] has been hard at work on his two-wheeled, self-balancing skateboard. He calls it the Sideway.

Much like the Segway, it relies upon the individual moving their weight to manage the speed at which it will certainly run. A Wii Nunchuk controller is made use of to guide, which differs each wheels outcome, which allows for some snug handling!

Under the deck is a pair of 24V 280W (regarding 1/3HP each) mobility scooter motors which are driven by two 32A Sabertooth rate controllers. They're escaped a set of 3 cell 5Ah LiPos which get him regarding 40 mins of usage-- not too shoddy! To deal with the control algorithm for the IMU, he's utilizing a Parallax Propeller with custom software.

To show, he takes us of a trip of one of his preferred shops-- Michael's.
For a first prototype, it works quite damn well. He's currently planning version two however. Yet keeping that being stated, just what ever before took place to Segway? We've seen sufficient home-made ones-- exists still considerably of a market for them, for aside from shopping mall safety and security and also traveler trips?
