1. Introduction

Here is a description with photos and video of a quite well working inverted
pendulum on a chart with computer controlled PID-regulator. More detailed
description will come soon with schematics and software download.

New! November 8 2018. I am right now experimenting with a simple Furuta
inverted pendulum with the same PID-regulator software and schematics.
Some images and a video will come soon.


2. Summary of technical components and software

Hardware for the inverted pendulum

Software for the inverted pendulum


3. Computer program downloads and instructions

Section to come soon.


4. Some photos and videos of the inverted pendulum

Some photos of the inverted pendulum with electronics taken with my mobile.
More information and images to come soon.

A video of the inverted pendulum taken with my mobile. It works quite well,
but as you understand I wish the track on which the chart is running was at
least two times longer. More information to come soon.
