A scale model of a bicycle equipped with a stabilization system was developed in the Mechatronics laboratory of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering of the Universite de Sherbrooke. Firstly, a proportional integral automatic control with adjusted gain was developed to make possible the riding of a bicycle using a remote control. Secondly, an intelligent control architecture based on a fuzzy controller was developed to make the bicycle stable and duplicate a human rider.
