Auto-Level-Balance Controller (Wii-Nunchuk Arduino)
March 8, 2009
Here is an interface that uses the cheap Wii-Nunchuk controller to create an Automatic Level-Balance Controller.
Not sure what to use it for - maybe a mount for a camera based bot - or some form of weight distribution system.
The system work quite fast and always regains its self to a level - in balance - equilibrium....
Any Bright Ideas would be welcome............
The system show here uses just one axis - if you converted it to use 2 or 3 axis(es) plus extra servos then for example you could mount a lazer on top and it would always point in the same direction whilst the undercarriage can twist and turn in any direction.
The Code is posted as attachement - it comes from 2 sources.
