Postby alfanick » Thu Jul 03, 2014 6:28 pm

Version: 0.1
Status: Alpha
License: Custom Licence
Download: https://github.com/alfanick/2-wheeler-hw

TwoWheeler is Self Balancing Robot implemented using XMOS startKIT platform.
The robot is solving physical problem of inverted pendulum using PID regulator connecting motors with accelerometer. However its hardware design has much more features:

8 core 32-bit microcontroller
bluetooth transceiver
two distance meters
motor driver with current sensing
buck converter designed for use with LiPo battery
battery voltage monitoring
high torque motors with encoders

Would you be able to put some instructions up how to get all the modules required to build this, cloning the linked project does not build.

Not yet - still need to find proper PID coefficients. However I will upload video and pictures ASAP as it's done. Thanks for interest :)
