I have been wanting to build a balancing bot for awhile now. Actually been working on the code for a long time. I finally have the bot built and balancing, so I thought I would share a short video.
All the bot can currently do is balance, but I was pretty excited last night when I fired it up for the first time and it kind of stayed in one place! The video is after about 20 minutes of tuning the PID loop.
The video is pretty boring, hopefully as I progress I will be able to post more interesting ones.
