Abstract

PURPOSE:To obtain a monocycle in which the angular momentum of a rotor about its axis is kept by inertia to prevent the car body from falling, by rotating the rotor rotatably supported to the car body using a rotor driving apparatus. CONSTITUTION:One wheel 2 is rotatably supported to a lower part of the car body 1, the wheel 2 being driven by a wheel driving apparatus 3. A rotating shaft 4a of the rotor driving motor 4 is secured to the upper part of the body 1, and the axis of the rotating shaft 4a is aligned with the axis of the body 1. The dish-like rotor 5 is secured to the body 4b of the motor 4, and a rotor shaft 5a extends from the upper axial part of the rotor, and is supported by a bearing 6. A position controlling weight 11 is threaded on a screw 9 extending normally to the rotational axis of the wheel 2 and can be moved along a guide bar 10.
