Why is it important?

The paper explains how to implement a low-cost effective teaching tool for teaching different aspects of a robotic system to students.


This paper covers PID controller, fuzzy logic and MPC performance for controlling a TWIP. The method proposed can easily be extended to other structures and controllers.
