This is the third post in the blog post series celebrating Arduino day 2014..
This post is about a low-cost mobile lab experiment kit put together by the talented folks at Minseg. This is an excellent example of the contribution Arduino has made to the field of engineering education. Experiment kits such as Minseg not only make control and mechatronics labs more engaging, but also make them accessible to a large student population.
The Minseg website has a number of resources including simulation models, video tutorials etc. With these resources, you can create a miniature version of a Segway using a lab experiment kit that includes an Arduino and Raspberry Pi. You can develop and simulate balancing algorithms for the robot using Simulink. Then deploy these algorithms on an actual robot to see the robot in action.
Here are a set of links to specific resources:
and yes - wish you a very happy Arduino day!
