Introduction - Control System Design 1/6 - Phil's Lab #7

Control system design covering aspects all the way from theory to the final, real-world implementation. This includes: mathematical modelling of dynamic systems, parameter estimation, theoretical controller design with practical considerations, simulation in software (Matlab and custom simulator written in Unity), and implementation in the real world (mechanical, electrical, and software).

The system to be controlled I call a 'balanced aeropendulum', which effectively is half of a quadcopter with one degree of freedom.

This video series will consist of six videos (including this one), covering all topics mentioned previously.
