    Abstract

    This paper describes a rig based on the ball-and-beam apparatus which has been used to effectively demonstrate the power of electronic control systems. Though the controller employs some complex electronic systems, its operation closely mimics that of a human performing the same action, and is therefore easily understood. This is achieves through measurement of the ball position and velocity states using a machine vision system.
