Birth of the Segway

Due to a halt in the progress of the GPS car, this week I worked on a self balancing segway. It uses an accelerometer and a step motor in order to keep it balanced. The step motor turns a gear that control which way of motion the wheels will go in order to keep it balanced. It also speeds up the rotation the further the segway is from balanced. It also has a feature that calibrated the center point whenever the arduino reset button is pressed. Soon, next week, the segways construction will be complete and hopefully it shall work.
