MinSeg Shield on Uno balancing.  Although the MinSeg Shield works seamlessly with Uno, external mode is not supported in simulink so this is not recommended for student labs. But its even smaller so its cool!  

MinSeg Shield with Mega Balancing and sending data wireless through an optional plug in Bluetooth to Matlab with real time visualization of MinSeg angle  The Simulink balancing code is shown in the background.  This graphical code gets compiled and automatically sent to the MinSeg with 1 Click

DC motor control lab.  Wheel position is plotted and  control parameters are modified in real time.

Minseg Balancing.  Control loop executes a full state feedback controller every 2.6 milliseconds.
