LinuxConf.Au: How to Build an Open-Source Segway

Building a self-balancing scooter like the Segway(R) has previously been shown to be "not actually very hard" by Trevor Blackwell. I have replicated his experience by building my own two-wheeled self-balancing ride-on robot using only off-the-shelf parts, and open-source hardware and software.

The presentation will go through how my scooter was built and the theory and practicalities of keeping it upright, along with a demonstration.
