Self-balancing human transporters are naturally unstable. However, when coupled with sophisticated control laws, these machines can provide mobility within a finite stability envelope. Challenging environmental conditions, or unanticipated operator action, can cause these machines to exhibit unexpected behavior. In an effort to better understand the behavior of these systems inside and outside the stability envelope, a dynamic model of a hoverboard is presented. Motion-capture data is also presented in which an operator’s interactions with the hoverboard were recorded.
