The robot is on a bicycle. It maintains its balance even when fully stopped! Performs stunts such as climbing slopes and running on balance beams.
Doesn’t totter and maintains his balance! He is capable of standing straight even when the bicycle has stopped.
With his ultrasonic sensor, he is capable of stopping before running into obstacles.
Climbs steep 25-degree slopes with ease and can climb them without a running start.
Crosses 2 cm wide balance beams with ease. He is capable of clearing it without falling over.
He is capable of running without falling over. And he doesn’t even have to look backwards.
Witness his excellent driving technique. Watch him enter a curve while maintaining his balance.
Information about MURATA BOY's components.
The gyro sensor detects minute slanting angles or turning motions of the body. Makes free standing and super-slow runs possible.
Measures the distance to objects by transmitting ultrasonic waves and calculating how long it takes the waves to bounce back. Detects obstacles to avoid collision.
Sensor for detecting vibration and shock. Used in a range of applications from PC hard disks to automotive airbag systems. Detects bumps and unevenness in the road.
One-chip functionality for wireless sending and receiving control signals and sensor data.
Extracts only the necessary signal, filtering out unwanted noise. Filters out interference to ensure stable operation.
Exchange the power voltage efficiently with the one battery.
Creates a reference signal for operation of the microcontroller.
Able to charge and discharge electricity repeatedly, capacitors are widely used for tasks such as stabilizing microcontrollers or power supplies, or extracting constant-frequency signals.
Stabilizes electric current and signals in wireless communication circuits and power supply circuits.
Monitors the temperature of ICs, power supply circuits, and batteries to protect the circuits from excessive current and overheating.

Gyro sensors are capable of detecting the bicycle’s slightest tilt. A force that recovers the tilting occurs by rotating the disk located in MURATA BOY’s chest when tilting of the bicycle is detected. Repeating this enables MURATA BOY to maintain his balance and posture.
The distance to the obstacle is measured with ultrasonic waves, enabling him to stop immediately before crashing.
