I have added two YouTube videos for those who could not attend the 2010 EV Festival.
The conference video is just an overview of the full days happenings and as such contains very little speaker content.
The Expo video contains some content from a fellow photographer and video-er.
Enjoy.

This was EDWARD the Di-wheel made by engineering students from the Mechanical Engineering section of the University of Adelaide.
It is pre-programmed for
a) Going along with seat hanging down. Normal mode.
b) travelling with the seat and driver upside down!
c) driver spinning with the motion of the di-wheel.Tumbling!
d) maybe more modes...

Photos taken at the EV Expo are available via the link below.

More info here...

The EDWARD DI WHEEL could use flywheel to store energy on deceleration a in reverse torque to balance the lurch and roll forward.

Fun stuff though as a circus trick.

They do say its got stabilisation. But they don't appear in their videos to show it, they seem pre-occupied by making it "gerble"
The EDWARD Project

This honours project involved the construction of a human operated diwheel. Many diwheels in the past have been human powered or powered by IC engines. This one is purely electric. It has additional functionality lacking in other models, including inbuilt dynamic lateral stability and slosh control to prevent "gerbiling" or tumbling in aggressive braking or acceleration maneuvers. The diwheel also incorporates a unique feature that allows the rider to drive the vehicle when "upside down" - keeping the vehicle in its unstable state is achieved using a combined swingup and inversion controller. The mechanical design and some of the electronics was completed in 2009, with the majority of the electronics and control systems developed in 2010. A photograph of the final system is shown below.
I'd like to see that Di-Wheel go up or down steps.
