Ball and Plate Tutorial - Results

The diagram below shows the results taken from the real ball and plate apparatus when no backlash or deadzone compensation was applied. The graphs from top to bottom are: ball position, plate angle and input motor speed.

The next diagram shows the results when compensation was applied for the non-linearities.

The major improvement here comes from the deadzone compensation, not the backlash compensation.
