During my academics, I designed a simple inverted pendulum for set-point and trajectory tracking problems. At that time, I do not have sufficient information regarding drives, Data acquisition cards, etc.,
design a simple inverted pendulum. But the cost is too high.
These are the details of the set-up I used to design an experimental
- Maxon motor, and the Maxon driver, too costly.
- NI-PCI 6014 data acquisition card. This has 2 analog outputs, but the req. is only one analog channel o/p.
The purpose is to apply classical controls on a simple inverted pendulum carrying 100gm weight.
Can any one please give sufficient information, so that for the nexttime I can optimize things.
PS: Suppose if I purchase a motor of sufficient torque, I wish to design driver circuit. If you people did any driver circuit designs please post the articles.
