SEGFAULT is an attempt at implementing in hardware principles visited by the control theory and feedback control courses I have taken. The goal is to create a rideable, self-balancing (Segway-like) vehicle whose controller is implemented in continuous-time using “linear time invariant” components and operational amplifiers. Successful completion of the project constitutes demonstrating a connection between the theoretical models presented in classwork and physical hardware with its nonlinearities and nonidealities. Also, custom Segway.
