Rotary Motion Challenge: Double Inverted Pendulum
Design a control system to balance a double inverted pendulum using a rotary motion arm.
A DC motor rotates an arm at one end in the horizontal plane. The opposite end of the arm is instrumented with a joint whose axis is along the radial direction of the motor. A pendulum (approx. 2″ in length) with another joint is mounted to the first joint. A second pendulum is attached to the second joint. Design a controller that balances the double inverted pendulum and maintains the arm position. The system is supplied with a state feedback controller. You may design any other controller you wish.
