Title
(EN) ROLL STABILIZATION APPARATUS FOR TWO-WHEELED VEHICLES
(FR) APPAREIL DE STABILISATION DE ROULIS POUR VÉHICULES À DEUX ROUES
Abstract
(EN)
A balance board coupled to a two-wheeled vehicle to provide a moving platform that an operator of the vehicle can use to stabilize the vehicle. The balance board includes a coupling mechanism, a frame, one or more moving elements, and one or more foot support pedals. In one example, the balance board is mechanically passive such that the balance board maintains contact with the ground surface without an externally applied force (e.g., by the operator/user of the vehicle). In one aspect, the balance board may be rotatable about multiple rotational degrees of freedom to allow the balance board to steer as the vehicle turns.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une planche d'équilibre qui est accouplée à un véhicule à deux roues pour fournir une plateforme mobile qu'un opérateur du véhicule peut utiliser pour stabiliser le véhicule. La planche d'équilibre comprend un mécanisme d'accouplement, un cadre, un ou plusieurs éléments mobiles et une ou plusieurs pédales de support de pied. Dans un exemple de l'invention, la planche d'équilibre est mécaniquement passive de sorte que la planche d'équilibre maintienne un contact avec la surface de sol sans force appliquée depuis l'extérieur (par exemple par l'opérateur/utilisateur du véhicule). Selon un aspect de l'invention, la planche d'équilibre peut tourner sur de multiples degrés de liberté de rotation afin de permettre sa direction à mesure que le véhicule tourne.
