Feedback Control - Swinging Blind Juggler - IDSC ETH Zurich

Published on Jan 31, 2013


The Swinging Blind is a robot juggles a ball from side-to-side without any sensors to detect the ball. In this video, we present a feedback strategy that uses the paddle motions to control the swinging of the pendulum.

Periodic Orbits - Blind Juggler - IDSC ETH Zurich

Uploaded on Jan 17, 2012


We demonstrate the different stable periodic orbits that exist for the Blind Juggler using the Cloverleaf paddle. Each of these periodic orbits (= repetitive ball motions) is locally stable. The balls need to be dropped at the right time and from the right height such that the ball ends up in the desired orbit. We use this paddle for research in the control of nonlinear dynamic systems.
