Recently a Circuit Cellar mag arrived and in the small adds at the
back was one for an autonomous balancing robot:

 Thank you everyone for your help!
 
James:
I looked at the http://www.balbots.com website. Their bot is too basic as it uses 2 IR detectors to do the balancing.  If the bot is going up/down hill or the floor is not even, it will fall for sure!
 
 Mike:
Thank you for pointing out this AppNote.  I will take a look at it to see if there is anything I can use.  I didn't think that differentiate/integrate is this simple, but it all makes sense now.
 
 Robert:
I already ordered the accelerator and gyro eval boards from Analog Devices.  I will play with them for a while to see what their responses look like and determine what to do with the date later (whether or not to integrate/diff).  I won't go with the Pot route for the long run, though.  Maybe just at the early development stages as James pointed out.
 
 I am really hooked to do this project and hope I can make it happens someday soon!  I am working on it a little bit every day since I have a full time job and attend night school (2 nights a week) at the same time.  I have a midterm next week, but I can't focus on studying as my mind is filled with images of my 2-wheel balancing robot!
 Regards,

The concept is elegant and very basic: past, present, and predicted
behavior/performance drives the control inputs. Feedback on steroids, in 20
lines of code or less.

I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned it, but did you know there in a Microchip AppNote on building an
inverted pendulum balancing device?  It's AN964 and can be found here:  
http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1824&appnote=en021807

This may be well known old news, but I thought I'd chuck it in anyway!  :-)
