Ball Balancing Full Project With PID Controller + Arduino Code + Matlab Response Plotting

About: Hello I am mohamed Hanfy ,undergraduate at third year communication and electronics dep. faculty of Engineering Alexandria University -Egypt . I like my study too much because i could do many projects and ...

balancing ball beam is a common application on PID(proportional–integral–derivative) controllers that you could find many versions of this project on instructables too . the new in this project is the real time plot of the system response through matlab , which determine the stability state of system clearly .
