The two-wheeled balancing robot is a project that has become very popular of late, in the field of Mechatronics and Robotics. This project draws on the theoretical principles of
the equally popular experiment of the inverted pendulum. The inverted pendulum system, unlike many other control systems is naturally unstable. The system therefore has to be controlled to reach stability in this unstable state.
