Self Balancing Gyroscope (V3) Using Arduino and Pot for Tilt Sensor

Here is my continuing saga of my gyroscope – in this version I use an Arduino Uno and a potentiometer to swing a counter weight to balance a precessing gyroscope so that it will balance indefinitely on two chopsticks. More … Continue reading
