Inertial Wheel Pendulum (IWP) is a planar pendulum with a revolving wheel (that has a uniform mass distribution) at the end. The pendulum is unactuated and the wheel is actuated. Our main result is to address global asymptotic stabilization of the inertia wheel pendulum around its up-right position. Simulation results are provided for parameters taken from a real-life model of the IWP.
