1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi, I have a project involving an inverted pendulum, as attached. 2. Relevant equations - 3. The attempt at a solution I don't really know about some things: First, is theta the only required input from the inverted pendulum system to Labview? Don't I also need the position of the cart that the pendulum will be mounted on? Secondly, from the component list, "Component 9 - a "Sharp IR Sensor plug and wire assembly" - Is this the sensor for theta? If the IR sensor is something like youtube.com/watch?v=PnJnbDfLr3M can it be used to measure theta?
