Stabilizing an unstable system. The camera tracks the position of the ball on the plate, sends x and y coordinates to the Arduino, which then sends angle positions to the two servos in order to keep the ball in the same position. A socket U- joint was used for the plate. A rail was used to tune the PID gains for each axis. Green parts are 3d printed. Attached is the lab report for this project.
