What you'll learn
- Students will gain an intuitive insight into how a PID controller works and how to implement it on the Arduino Platform!
- Use the PID algorithm for their Arduino or microcontroller-based projects such as quad-copters, self balancing robots, temperature control, motor speed control, and much more!
Learn the basics behind how a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller works and how to implement one on the Arduino hardware!
A PID controller is the most common feedback controller used in the industry, but they can also be used for hobbyist electronic projects such as quad-copters, self-balancing robots, temperature controllers, and much more! In this course, we will not be going into the classical control theory behind PID controllers, instead we will approach the controller intuitively so that it's role and implementation is practically understood.
The lecture series contains 7 lectures covering:
- Feedback Systems, P, PI, and PID Controllers
- Arduino Implementation and Live Demonstration (Propeller Arm Example)
- Heuristic PID Tuning
A template for the Arduino code will also be provided and explained in the series. In order to demonstrate the controller in real-time, a propeller arm example has been constructed. The live demonstration will be used to explain the behavior of the PID controller and how to tune one heuristically.
This course is suitable for any student, engineer, hobbyist, or maker who always wished to understand PID control in a easy intuitive manner; although a basic understand of electronics, C coding, and calculus is preferred. Having knowledge of feedback control prior to taking this course is also a plus!
After taking this course, you will not only understand PID control better, but you'll become a lot more comfortable with designing projects that involve feedback control.

Engineer and Electronics Hobbyist
My name is Nabil, I'm an engineer by day and hobbyist by night. I was born in New York, USA but raised in New Jersey my whole life. I hold a BSc and MSc in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University and currently work as a full-time engineer.
Like many engineering students, I had a hard time understanding the theory and concepts intuitively, but once I was able to make some practical sense of it all, I wanted to share my knowledge with others (students, engineers, makers, DIY'ers).
My courses will mostly be design-based, in areas of: analog design, audio amps, control systems, power supply design and much more!
When I am not working or tinkering, you can find me playing the electric guitar, hitting the gym, or cooking.
Very good demonstration. Arduino code also very useful. Better Than I hoped for!
I was expecting a bit more, hoping that students would have been guided on how to implement the controller as well
Useful ... straight to the point
Good info delivered quick and efficiently
