The dynamics of the accelerating bicycle

Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to study the dynamics of the accelerating bicycle under straight-running and cornering conditions. If the bicycle is cornering at constant acceleration and roll angle, it is shown that for low values of acceleration (and braking), it follows closely a logarithmic spiral shaped trajectory. The studies presented are facilitated by a novel control scheme that centres the machine's trajectory on an arbitrary point in the ground plane; the origin of the inertial refere...
