Linear Inverted Pendulum
system is a nonlinear unstable system, an ideal experiment platform for
teaching control theories and conducting various control experiments. Many
abstract control concepts, such as the stability and the controllability of a
control system, can all be shown visually through the inverted pendulum system.
In addition to educational purposes, an inverted pendulum is also a research
area for many researchers of modern control theories. Through the continuous
research on new ways of controlling inverted pendulum, researchers have
developed new control methods, and apply them to the high tech areas such as
aeronautical engineering and robotics, thanks to the characteristics of the
system, such as high-order, instability multi-variables, non-linearity and strong
coupling. The linear inverted pendulum series products developed by Googol
Technology adopt an open control solution and a modularized experiment
platform. With the linear motion module as the base platform, it is easy to
build more than 10 teaching and experiment control platforms, satisfying the
various needs for control teaching and research.
