Re: Very Tall Falling-Up Robot with Stepper Motors

Okay, I got the XBEE communication working with the Teensy 3.6 mcu, and able to send motion commands to the Falling-Up Robot. Able to yaw and translate the 6-foot robot while maintaining tilt stability. It's no longer tethered to the USB port and the power supply unit. See latest video below. Recomm...

Re: Very Tall Falling-Up Robot with Stepper Motors

For example making the wheels larger might amplify the vibration but making them heavier should also dampen them by adding angular momentum to overcome. The mechanical vibration seems to be mostly driven by the NEMA23 motor case mounted to the robot chasis. Even if the motors are not spinning, ther...

Very Tall Falling-Up Robot with Stepper Motors

I'm developing the Falling-Up Robot, a very tall balancing inverted pendulum bot, using the Teensy 3.6 microcontroller with the Arduino IDE 1.6.12. I want to learn feedback control systems through practice & experience. It's tall so I can interact with it at desk level. So far, the brain and chassis...
