Virtual Laboratory

A set of animated experiments is currently under development. JAVA programs are being written to animate the rotating inverted double pendulum, the acrobot, and the wedge. The animations will run on any machine capable of displaying Java applets, and can be used in conjunction with a simulation package (e.g., Matlab) to visualize the results of a simulation.
