Active Gyroscopic Balancing with DYNAMIXEL

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this latest video I’ve found from one of our favorite YouTubers, James Bruton. This particular video is especially interesting to me because it gives a great and well-visualized demonstration of gyroscopic balancing.

After demonstrating the principles behind gyroscopes and how they balance, he moves on to create an actively-balanced gyroscope module powered by DYNAMIXEL. Here, the precise control allowed by the servo helps result in a system that can resist significant pushes and maintain balance! These types of self-stabilizing systems are frequently used in ships, aircraft, and self-balancing vehicles and robots- showing how diverse the benefits of gyro stabilization are.

Let us know what you think!
