Sure, i'll post the code this evening as i get home. Be warned that the code is a real mess smiley

Anyway, i adapted the code for the kalman filter from these two sites:

The rest is the pid controller (not that complex), something to use the LCD and other glue.

Hello, i've been working on a self balancing robot, based on Arduino.
I used an RD01 drive system, an IMU combo board with 2 accelerometer and a gyroscope.

The system features a kalman filter to acquire data from the IMU and a PID controller to control the motors.

The robot is actually able to stand by itself indefinitely, but it's not completely stable, either becouse of my software or becouse of the motors that have a little "loosiness" (a couple of degrees of "free" rotation). I'm still working on it smiley

Hello, i'd like to purchase a couple of vpack devices from http://www.bodhilabs.com/ but the ship from US..
Is there a reseller in Europe (i'm in Italy), or alternatively can anyone suggest something similar, expecially for 2xAAA or 1xAAA to 3.3V?

Many thanks smiley
