How do self balancing scooters work?

If you’re living in a big city and go outside daily, you must have seen at least one person riding a self balancing scooter. This is a new trend that’s gaining popularity very, very fast. More and more people are opting for self balancing scooters because they are safe, eco friendly, energy efficient and easy to use. Eco friendly and energy efficient somehow go hand to hand, if you use electricity as an energy source, you will not pollute and all you will have to do to maintain that energy source is to recharge a battery once in a while. Now, the question as it stands in the topic is, how do self balancing scooters actually work?

Well, how they function is extremely easy, if you want to accelerate all you have to do is lean forward, or if you want to stop, lean backwards. For steering purposes, if you want to turn left, push the right handlebar forward, if you want to go right, pull it backwards. It’s as simple as that. But to actually achieve the great functionality of this device is not that simple, so how does it work?  

The thing we would compare self balancing scooters that will describe them the closest is human inner ear. Just like our brain gets the idea of where we are and how we’re positioned at any given moment in time, microprocessor that serves as a brain of self balancing scooters knows that as well. The only difference is that our brain uses fluids and signals while microprocessors have a tilt sensor. Just like our inner ear, a tilt sensor sends signals to the microprocessor which later on regulates the motor. This clears the confusion on how does the device know when to accelerate and when to stop, but how it actually balances itself is a different question.
For self balance, scooters have another sensor system. This system works on a principle where if a person riding the scooter pushes on a point at the top of the spinning wheel, the system will push a force on the opposite end of the spinning wheel thus maintaining the balance.

Another critical part of Self balancing scooters is safety control.

But what happens if the system malfunctions and self balance stops working. Based on that each time self balancing scooters system fails, you will fall on your nose. To prevent this designers thought of a clever feature that is installed in every self balancing scooter. Once the main microprocessor stops working, another one will take its place and keep your scooter balanced. While replacing the main one it also sends the message of a system failure alerting you that something is wrong and you need to stop before it slowly stops working.

Knowing all this, you probably got the desire to buy one for yourself. Self balancing scooters may be a little pricey but knowing they won’t cost you any more than the electricity you will use for recharging purposes, they may be a smart investment.

Electrical bikes are not cheap – most retail for between $1,000 and $6,000 so before you buy one you need to know that it will really be useful.

Electrical bikes are a great way to get around without spending any money on fuel. All you need to do is charge the battery and this doesn’t use up enough electricity to make a significance difference in your power bill. In other words, you are saving money that you could use for important projects.

Electric bikes last a long time. If you take the time to select a good brand, you can expect it to last at least 10 years before you need to replace it. Most manufacturers offer a good warranty on their electric bikes – if you buy a bike that is worth $2,000 or more you can expect to get at least 2 years warranty.

With an electric bike you avoid wasting time in traffic – weave your way through the other cars and get to your destination faster. You also don’t have to stick to riding on the road – you can get off the road which makes travel time shorter.

Electric bicycles are a great way for you to reduce your carbon footprint – you are not buying fuel which means there is a smaller demand for it. It may not sound like much but if more and more people stop using their cars for short trips it makes a big difference.

What should you take into account when you are choosing an electric bicycle? The most important thing to take into account is whether the bike meets your particular needs. If you will be using the bike in a hilly area, for example, you need to choose one that has a good motor. If your interest is to travel long distances then you should be looking for a bike that has a battery that lasts a long time.
