DC Motor control using iPod

This video shows a DC motor position control experimental testbed being commanded using an iPod Touch. The user commands the position of the DC motor using a slider at the bottom of the iPod graphical user interface (GUI). The measured position and velocity responses of the motor is communicated in real-time to the GUI and plotted in the two graphs shown. Alternative iPod interfaces allow the user to manipulate gains of an algorithm controlling the DC motor position.
