    Inverted pendulum system using 12V 775 DC motor, driven by L298N motor driver.
    Controlled by a joystick interfaced using an arduino uno.

    observations:
    - Irregular and abrupt motions.
    - Motor unable to provide enough torque
    - difficulty in precise controlling of the motor

    inferences:
    - Driver limitations 2A output per channel. Hence, could not provide enough torque for smooth            transmission.
    - Mechanism is smooth without the motor involved.

    Attaching images of items procured. 

    Meanwhile designing models that need to be 3D printed - motor mount, base plate, etc.

    Soon to upload CAD models of the setup
