Asked by: Ben Odinot
Subject: Making a Stabilising Platform
Question: I have to do a school project and for this I want to make a car with a stabilizing platform. The basic idea is make a platform that can move on the x axis and attach a wheel with an engine underneath it. My hope is that when the car goes over a bump that the platform stays horizontal. My question is if this is in any way possible and if so how I can calculate the mass and size of the wheel?

P.S. For a clearer idea go to this link: http://gyroscopes.org/uses.asp
and look at ship stabilisers.
