    AU ball on Plate Balancing Robot 

    Ali, Ehsan; Narong Aphiratsakun (2015)

    The ball on plate system is the extension of traditional ball on beam balancing problem in control theory. In this paper the implementation of a proportional-integral- derivative controller (PID controller) to balance a ball on a plate has been demonstrated. To increase the system response time and accuracy multiple controllers are piped through a simple custom serial protocol to boost the processing power, and overall performance. A single HD camera module is used as a sensor to detect the ball’s position and two RC servo motors are ...

    Single Loop and Double Loop Control of AU Self-Balancing Bicycle (AUSB) 

    Narong Aphiratsakun; Kittiphan Techakittiroj (2012-12)

    This paper evaluates the controllers performance on AU Self-balancing Bicycle (AUSB). The gyroscope is used to sense the balanced position of the bicycle while an encoder is used to sense the position of the flywheel. The Single loop uses a gyroscope sensor and an additional encoder sensor is used in the Double loop. The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate the improvement in the performance of the AUSB. In the Single loop control, the bicycle can balance within a certain flywheel angle, and then the bicycle will fall. In the Double ...
