The STEVAL-EDUKIT01 is designed to represent a complex, non-linear and unstable oscillator for university-level robotics projects. It consists of a transparent structure holding a free-swinging pendulum, whose movement has to be stabilized by a stepper motor with feedback from a high performance rotary encoder reading the pendulum angle.

The STSW-EDUKIT01 firmware includes critical, high-speed algorithms that interpret encoder data and allow the stepper motor to counter the movement of the pendulum so that it remains vertical.

The educational set, with real-time Matlab viewer and interface, helps you build your understanding of ARM-based embedded architecture (STM32CubeIDE), stepper motor control and real-time systems based on proportional, integral, derivative (PID) control, as well as more advanced techniques such as State Space or State Space with linear quadratic regulator (LQR).
