  • Patent number: 10207763
    Abstract: A usage detection system for a self-balancing powered unicycle is disclosed. The usage detection system is adapted to detect an indication of intended usage from a user and to provide an indication of intended usage. The indication of intended usage comprises manipulation of the overall unicycle device resulting from preparatory action taken by the user prior to the onset of the intended usage. Operation of the powered unicycle may thus be controlled based on an indication of intended usage from the usage detection system.

  • Publication number: 20180265159
    Abstract: A self-balancing powered unicycle is disclosed. The unicycle comprises: a single wheel; a motor adapted to drive the wheel; a balance control system adapted to maintain fore-aft balance of the unicycle device; a foot platform for supporting a user of the unicycle device, wherein the foot platform is movable between a stowed position and an active position; and an actuator coupled to the foot platform and adapted to move the foot platform between the stowed position and active position. The actuator comprises: a guide member; and a connecting element connected to the foot platform and slidably coupled to the guide member at a coupling position such that the coupling position moves relative to the guide member as the foot platform is moved between the stowed position and active position.

  • Publication number: 20180154761
    Abstract: A powered unicycle device has a hub motor and a tyre around the motor. A motor casing around the motor defines side walls (300,305) and an outer annular rim (301,306), and the tyre is mounted around the outer annular rim (301,306). The motor casing is formed of only two side walls (300,305) each having a rim portion (301,305), and the rim portions (301,305) connect to each other, together defining the outer annular rim (301,305).
