Title: Ball and hoop system
Description: The Ball and Hoop system is an electromechanical device consisting of a ball rolling on the rim of a hoop. The hoop is mounted on the shaft of a servomotor and can rotate about its axis. The rotation of the hoop causes an oscillatory movement of the ball around its equilibrium point. The behavior of the ball is similar to the dynamic of a liquid inside a cylindrical container. The main objective of this system is to control these oscillations.
