Test #0: Motor and mechanism trial.

A project log for Inverted pendulum on a cart

Building an inverted pendulum system with PID control. Trying to achieve swing-up.

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.
