  • Patent number: 9367066
    Abstract: An inverted pendulum type vehicle capable of dissipating the dissociation of vehicle steering intention of a user and a vehicle motion condition. When a base tilts toward a first designated direction, gravity center shift effect amount Vofs_x is corrected by a gravity center shift correction amount Vdep_x calculated according to the tilting amount. The gravity center shift correction amount Vdep_x with respect to a second designated direction is determined so as to increase as the tilting amount toward the first designated direction of the base. Further, the gravity center shift effect amount Vdep_x determined by tilting toward the first designated direction of the base is controlled to a threshold value or less.

  • Patent number: 9346511
    Abstract: An inverted pendulum type vehicle capable of improving consistency of the intention of an operator and the motion condition of the vehicle. When a low frequency component of an estimate value Vb_estm1_y of the translational speed in the Y-axis direction of a vehicle system center of gravity of the entirety deviates from a dead zone of a processing unit and movement of the waist of an operator is sudden enough to generate a high frequency component in Vb_estm1_y, a target turning angular velocity ?z_cmd_gc is set to a positive value or a negative value depending on the deviation amount, and a turning suppression factor K?z is adjusted to 0. Therefore, motion of actuator devices of a vehicle is controlled so that turning of the vehicle is suppressed and the vehicle system center of gravity of the entirety is translated to +Y-axis direction.

  • Publication number: 20160129957
    Abstract: Provided is a control unit for an inverted pendulum vehicle that can warn the vehicle operator by changing the behavior of the vehicle before the upright control of the vehicle fails. The control unit includes a target tilt command computation unit for computing a target tilt command (M_cmd_xy) for the base frame, and an attitude control computation unit for computing a target translational speed (Vw1_cmd_xy) for fulfilling the target tilt command. When state information of the vehicle has deviated from a prescribed upright control tolerance range, the target tilt command computation unit generates a tilt command for notification, and superimposes the tilt command for notification (M_xy=M1_xy+M2_xy) onto the target tilt command.
