Arduino and PID to Balance Ball on Track [Project]
posted September 27 2014 18:56.35 by Giorgos Lazaridis

I rarely post projects with no documentation but this one is a very good "visual showcase" of the PID operation. If you know the PID theory then you understand how this works. This guys got an ultrasonic range detector to measure the distance of a ball on a track. The track tilts on a shaft with a servo. The Arduino used a PID algorithm to try and balance the ball on a fixed position. And it works!
Its a very good example to start learning PID...
