Electric Diwheel With Active Rotation Damping, meet EDWARD

The future of eco-friendly mono-wheel-inspired vehicles that works in normal, balanced and thrill-inclined electric two-wheel ride. A team of Mechanical Engineering students for the University of Adelaide have developed EDWARD, stands for ‘Electric Diwheel With Active Rotation Damping’. Notably, it’s equipped with built-in dynamic lateral stability and slosh control aimed to minimized the gerbiling effect where the rider tends to rock back and forth during hard braking or fast acceleration. At first when I watched the video (after the break), in the start, I have to say got disappointed on what is the sense on developing this vehicle? But during the application of the control they’ve developed midway on the video, yes, even got me thinking when they have even designed where the driver can control the thing inverted. You better check out the video after the cut.
