About this creation

Techbricks.nl's
NXTway-gyro is a LEGO NXT Mindstorms version of a Segway PT, a two-wheeled self balancing electric vehicle, invented by Dean Kamen.



In one of my first NXT projects I rebuild the NXTway design by Philippe E. Hurbain's. This two-wheel bot was self-balancing using a light sensor. Other people came up with the idea to balance such a robot with a Gyro sensor: Ryo Watanabe made his NXTway-G, Ramin made his self-balancing robot, Yorihisa Yamamoto (lejos-osek.sourceforge.net) made his NXTway-GS and Engscope made his Jegway. I wanted to make my own self-balancing robot with a wireless remote Mindsensors PSP-nx-v3 joystick controller, just because I am fascinated by the fact that a two-wheel bot can stay up (like a human!).

Here is a video of my remote controlled NXTway-gyro performing a simple test over a tilt/slope surface with small NXT wheels:

The NXTway-gyro measures, calculates and adjust 100 times per second the angel of the body of the robot using a HiTechnic Gyro sensor.

Wow... This thing doesn't have nearly the attention it deserves. That's absolutely incredible. I'm gonna have to get my hands on one of those Gyros...
