Development and control of Mobile Inverted Pendulum
posted July 19 2010 17:44.36

Five students from Electro-Mechanical System Design (EMSD) department of Aalborg University, Denmark made as their 8th semester project an implementation of the inverted pendulum theory.
This resulted in a vehicle capable of achieving a max speed of 8 km/h and operate up to 3h with its twin 12V batteries not to mention the fun factor provided.
The control is easy to learn even for a kid as you can see in the video but this does not deprive the needed accuracy as the measured tilt angle precision is <0,2deg.
A team effort with marvelous results and lot of fun, enjoy!
