Ok, i started doing some tests with my IMU module. It turns out that, while it is has very low noise while standing still, is suffer greatly from the robot vibration and movements.. Some research was in the need :)

self balancing bot

check this Self-balancing robot on instructables. It doesn't stand upright for very long, but it's a very good starting point, IMHO.
So here we are :) I decided to try and build the holy grail of robotics hobbist: a self balancing robot. I've made some research around and i've come to the … Read more
