I want to simulate a bicycle moving around a circle. Instead of graphs and calculations, I want to almost see an actual simulation of this happening. How could I do this?

I tried looking up simulations on Mathematica online. However, I couldn't find resources that would allow me to do so. Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ The question, as written, is very broad, and is unlikely to get complete answers. A fitting answer would be just as broad as the question itself. The steps to animate a bicycle: 1. find a 3D model 2. import it into Mathematica 3. use GeometricTransformation to transform it into the correct position 4. use ListAnimate/Animate to animate it. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Oct 14 '19 at 15:11

    $\begingroup$ If you mean a full physical simulation of a bicycle with moving parts (not just an animation), that is highly non-trivial to do in Mathematica, and it is much too general for a single question here. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Oct 14 '19 at 15:13
  • $\begingroup$ It is not even clear why bicycle is not falling. See this Science paper science.sciencemag.org/content/332/6027/339.abstract $\endgroup$ – yarchik Oct 14 '19 at 18:47
