In this project I am going to show you how to make a one wheeled robot or unicycle step by step so that you can make your own. This robot can balance automatically by calculating inclination with the help of MPU6050 sensor, it is consisted of two sensors gyroscope and accelerator. As only one wheel is used which is connected to gear motor so to counterbalance the robot we need to add some weight here 11.1 v lipo battery is used and this is perfectly fine for balancing for left and right side, forward and backward will be controlled by wheel. The mechanical structure is made by aluminium sheet some nut and bolt, every step is clearly shown in the video.

Step 1: Parts Lists:

1.Metal DC Geared Motor w/Encoder - 12V 251RPM

2. nRF2401

3.L298 motor driver

4. MPU6050

5. 3s 11.1V 2200mAh 30C LiPo Battery

4. some nut bolt

5. one wheel

6. U-shaped aluminium sheet 1ft is enough

7. switch
