Any two wheeler vehicles usually cannot balance by itself when it is in rest or running at a lower speed. The purpose of this research is to make a vehicle that would be stable by itself in such situations and can be stabilized against any physical impact. Two heavy rotating disks with hub motors have been used here to develop the mechanism of compensating the tilt of the vehicle and get it stabilized. To measure the tilt angle, an android device has been used and then the angle of tilt has sent to a Bluetooth receiver which is connected with the vehicle. An android application has been developed which takes the tilt angle as input from its gyroscope and sends data to that receiver accordingly. This arduino controls the motor which has been used to control the tilt direction of both of the rotating disks according to the signal. This vehicle is designed to provide the safety that two wheeler vehicle does not have during an impact or at zero velocity. Hence, this research is aimed to design a safe, cost effective and fuel efficient self-balanced vehicle for third world countries like Bangladesh.
