Arduino Duemilanove Atmega328 PID Controller

My first attempt at designing a PID controller. It’s a basic level with a motor and a propeller on one end to act as a balanced beam. Using an Arduino board, measurements of tilt were taken with a mesmic accelerometer. The arduino board was then programmed as a PID controller dampening any disturbance to the lever.

I’m currently in the process of designing another arduino PID Controller which will have a significantly better responce to disturbances. I should, hopefully, have a new video up within the next couple of weeks detailing the new pid controller.

    Do you think you could make your code available? I’m doing something similar and am having trouble getting my set up to hover.

    @jomelmaldonado Appreciate it. You should check out my Arduino Tilt Sensor and tell me what you think.

    Good job! I’m wondering how did you adjust the PID gains. How much is the sampling period?
