Course Summary

The Balancing Robot Training Course provides a solid introduction to key features and concepts of the ADEPT Framework by taking a user through basic development, control and analysis of an rtx server using a Linux BeagleBone Blue (BBBlue) Single Board Computer (SBC) in a Balancing Robot (mobile inverted pendulum). This course starts with very basic concepts and quickly builds skills to integrate and analyze a PID control loop model that balances the Robot. To learn more about the training course, see the Balancing Robot Training Brochure.
