The pendulum simulator has been created to accompany a coming series of video tutorials entitled ‘How to Balance a Robot’. The series will cover the following:
- Modelling and Simulating a pendulum using PyGame
- Modelling and simulating a self balancing robot using Pygame
- Build your own PID controller for dynamically stabilising an inverted pendulum
- Dynamically stabilising a real system, namely the T-Bot
You can find the code for the pendulum here.
