For the past 20 years, students at hundreds of universities have been learning control theory while doing experiments with the SRV02 - the base unit of Quanser's Rotary Family. This simple experiment has many different add-ons, full curriculum for experiments, and is open-architecture. Over 17 experiments can be performed with the rotary family and researchers are starting to use it more as an experimental platform.
In this video, you get to see the SRV02 up close and learn about what makes it so special.
