Self Balancing Telepresence Robot


Students from the University of Waterloo in Ontario have created a robot called TIPI (Telepresence Interface by Pendulum Inversion) that can balance itself using the inverted pendulum method.

Using a Polulu Orangutang SVP to control the motors, a Beagle Board for communications as well as other parts, the four students created a self balancing telepresence robot. Nice job guys!

    I’m wondering if you could develop this robot base for the iPAD.

    Thank you for your time,
