ZMP, in collaboration with Nippon Institute of Technology (NIT), Harada Vehicle Design, and ZNUG Design, has created another autonomous vehicle robot kit which they call the E-NUVO Superwheel.
Unlike their RoboCar, the two wheeled E-NUVO Superwheel runs only on two wheels and is even capable of staying upright because of its built-in sensor and gyro sensor, which utilizes the 'inverted pendulum' model.
This mobile robot is capable of making turns while staying in place. It can also maintain a level posture even on uneven areas. The E-NUVO Superwheel measures 74 x 62 x 45 cm and is quite bulky at 38 kilograms. The optional “AutoBOX dSPACE” that can be added to this robot will increase its weight to 45 kgs.
