The ball balancing table (BBT in short) plays a very important role in mechatronics and robotics. Also, control theory is a very important concept in many parts of technology. Many models and developments have begun to emerge based on this theory. Just as each model is based on a theory, the ball balancing table is based on control theory. Balancing the ball placed on a table in the desired position is one of the most important examples of control theory.

The ball and beam system is a popular example in control theory. This robot is a very useful tool both for students to understand systems and for studies in engineering fields. The ball-and-beam system consists of a ball that rotates back and forth on a long beam that can be tilted by a servo or electric motor. Let's look a little further, at the ball-and-beam system.
