Mechatronic Engineering students at the University of Adelaide often undertake real-time control projects as part of their final year thesis. One of these projects, EDGAR (Electro-Drive Grav-Aware Ride), covers the design and testing of a two-wheeled, self-balancing vehicle capable of carrying a human. A dSPACE DS1104 R&D Controller Board was used to rapid-prototype the controller prior to embedding the controller on a low-cost microcontroller target.
