In this chapter, we propose to design a control scheme based on model-free technique to deal with underactuation in stable limit cycle generation. In order to achieve stable limit cycles on both coordinates of the inertia wheel inverted pendulum, we first design a family of p-parameterized periodic trajectories for the pendulum's angle. Those trajectories are then tracked using the control input thanks to a classical model-free controller. Since the system is underactuated and nonminimum phase, a second controller is needed to update the parameter p of the above trajectories in order to deal with the convergence of the internal dynamics of the system.To achieve this control, we propose a second model-free controller using actuated coordinate (inertia wheel) as output and trajectories' parameter p as control input. Note that this control scheme can be easily applied to the stabilization case by carefully choosing appropriate trajectories. Numerical simulations as well as real-time experiments are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme and its ability for external disturbances rejection.
