Mechanics 1

  Stabilising an Inverted Pendulum on a Cart

4th order runge-kutta, system of equations, animation

The 4th order Runge-Kutta method was used to integrate the equations of motion for the system, then the pendulum was stabilised on its inverted equilibrium point using a proportional gain controller and linear quadratic regulator.
