Description

My second balancing bot built with the help off Kas guide Balancing robot for dummies that i’m hosting on my server.. The v2 is made in aluminium to be lighter but all the electronics are still connected with jumper wires and will be changed later on with some custom made PCB boards and better wiring. My motors are very different in behavior so i will add a PID for each motor to get them to behave more a like and use a bluesmirf to remote control the robot from my netbook.

Code used for the bot: X_Bot_v2.rar
GUI used to set the parameters: BalancingBotGUI_v_3.rar

Here is the robots first steps (Five short attempts to trim the parameters):
