Autonomous Control of Riderless Motorcycles Chapter uri icon


  • © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved. The focus of this chapter is on the control systems design of autonomous riderless motorcycles for agile manoeuvres. In the first section of this chapter, the external/internal convertible-based tracking and balancing control design is presented. In the next section, a tracking error improvement by path-following control design is explained. Both trajectory-tracking and path-following control designs are validated through simulation results. The chapter ends with a discussion of future research directions.
