Self-balancing robot is a two-wheeled robot which balances itself so that it prevents itself from falling. This concept is somewhat similar to the operation of a unicycle, the rider of the unicycle balances by moving himself in the same direction of the inclination so that he stays vertical, similarly the self-balancing robot balances by moving in the same direction of the inclination.

You will be needing Arduino Uno board, GY-521 module with MPU-6050 which has MEMS Accelerometer, MEMS Gyro and a Magnetometer in a single chip, you will also be needing a motor driver to run the motors.
The GY-521 module help in stabilizing the robot, the inclination of the robot is calculated and the inclination data is sent to the Arduino, depending on this inclination data the robot has to be programmed. The robot should maintain a 90 degree inclination that is the robot should always be vertical in order to balance itself, so if the inclination is above 90 degrees then the robot should move in forwarding direction to balance itself similarly if the inclination is below 90 degrees the robot should move in reverse direction to balance itself.
Using the above logic you can program your robot to balance itself, the robot balances even though you disturb it by pushing, you can also build a strong robot such that it can carry some weight on it and also make the robot balance some objects kept on it.

Project Brief: The Robot when switched on and placed vertically on the floor, the GY-521 module checks for the inclination of the robot and depending on this data the motors are actuated and the robot stabilizes itself b moving in the same direction of the inclination. The robot can stabilize even from the external disturbance that is from any push or pull, you can also place an object on the robot and balance it.
Programming language: Arduino programming (C++)
