Abstract: The realization of an unmanned self-stabilizing bicycle is discussed. A stability analysis is made for a mathematical model of a bicycle controlled by the rotation of the front set. It is shown that the self- running bicycle can be asymptotically stabilized only when the damping factor in the rotation axis of the front set is considered, and the input signals of the control system should contain the angular velocity of the side-leaning of the bicycle.

Key words: unmanned bicycle, asymptotic stability, Hurwitz's criterion
