Use Simulink to simulate the Uno's mechanical systems to increase efficiency and reduce risks

The Uno III is unlike any other vehicle in the world. Originally prototyped as a self-balancing, electric dicycle, the Uno III can transform into a motorcycle by deploying a third wheel on the fly.
When BPG Motors engineers began the Uno III redesign, it was clear that manually tuning controllers and testing on the actual vehicle would be inefficient and risky. Instead, they used Simulink®, Simscape™, and SimMechanics™ to model and simulate the Uno’s mechanical systems.
