Part 2 – software, assembly, control

After the theory, here comes the practical! This second part will guide you in building your inverted pendulum. Once the electronics have been wired up and the mechanical parts assembled, you’ll be able to listen to the heart of the pendulum using the Windows software designed for this purpose.
