MURATA GIRL's Capabilities

Information about MURATA GIRL's capabilities.
Idling stop

I manipulate my pedals to keep my balance and remain in a stationary position.

Running in reverse

I don’t need to look behind me to run in reverse.

Following others

I use ultrasonic waves to react to people and objects and follow them at a preset distance.


Why doesn’t MURATA GIRL fall down?

Her secret is the two built-in Gyro Sensors in her back.
These sensors detect sideways and lengthways movements to calculate the slanting angle of the body, and MURATA GIRL rotates a flywheel in her chest to correct the left to right slant while rotating the unicycle wheel backwards or forwards in small increments to maintain her front to back balance.
