A symbolic investigation of controller design for a single inverted pendulum system.

Presentation / Conference
Woodham, C. A., & Su, H. (2002, July)
A symbolic investigation of controller design for a single inverted pendulum system. Paper presented at ICCAM 2002, Leuven, Belgium
The two dimensional inverted pendulum is unstable in that it may fall over at any time in either direction unless a suitable control force is applied. This paper designs a con...
