Project: SEGFAULT

Seg 62

Our fave maker @ MIT has made an analog Segway

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.

  1. ok when will there be a kit lol

  2. Prove you are colour blind by not being able to read the resistor bands …
