I think that should be possible. It will need extra motor controller hardware and accelerometers of course.

Hi Juri5120,

Check out this resource:

https://github.com/Guzunty/Pi/wiki/Say-Hello-to-PiTeR

This robot balances like a segway. There is a complete list of parts, explanation of how it works and is fully open source soft/hardware.

HTH,

Derek
