Abstract: The inverted pendulum, a popular mechatronic application, exists in many
different forms. The common thread among these systems is their goal: to balance a link
on end using feedback control. Two challenging inverted pendulum systems are the
rotational and arm-driven systems. The system described in this paper can be
transformed from the rotational to the arm-driven configuration by replacing the links and
setting the base on its side. It was designed and built by students as part of the course
Mechatronic System Design at Rensselaer. This paper presents a complete mechatronic
system design case study for this inverted pendulum system.

Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of
mechanical engineering, electronics, control systems
and computers. The key element in mechatronics is
the integration of these areas through the design
