Video - how an electric unicycle works

Ha, great video that really explains the workings in detail; really liked it B)

But... he didn't actually explain the *actual* balancing algorithm, i.e. go forward if falling forward, or backward when falling backward, and how 'speeding up' or 'breaking' are just consequences of this continuous balancing. Ah well.

brw, as I understand, the hall-sensors are really only used to get more precision about wheel position when the wheel speeds slowly (which is important for eWheel balancing) but at higher speeds the back EMF (voltage difference between coils) is measured to get the speed.
