In the first portion of this study a linear double inverted pendulum is modeled and an LQR controller is designed to control the pendulum. Following this, the feasibility of a real-time control system based on the Microsoft Windows operating system is analyzed. A multimedia timer is adopted to realize the control of the pendulum based on the Windows system, and the real-time control codes are encapsulated into a single Dynamic Link Library (DLL). LabVIEW is used as the programming tool to design the user interface on the server. Then remote measurement and control system of the linear double inverted pendulum, including starting, stepping, publishing to the web, is realized. While publishing to the web proceeds, the user can control the linear double inverted pendulum in the browser and realize the remote control of the linear double inverted pendulum based on LabVIEW.
