By now you probably know I have something for inverted pendulums. I just found this project done in the University of Michigan as a Senior Design project. I like this particular project because:
- The inverted pendulum model was provided using Matlab, but it was implemented MathScript
- LabVIEW used for the control algorithm and cRIO for the embedded control platform
- I like the enclosure used to make it safe. This system is meant to be in a museum for children
- I also like the use of magnets to disturb the plant. Slick!
Here is a link to the youtube video
I know, I have to start posting about something different from inverted pendulum :D
