Ball and beam is an interesting controls problem. A good friend of mine from graduate school used to do research on this problem, both from the theoretical and experimental sides. So I was immediately drawn to this example by Jeffrey.
This didactic tool has a nice graphical user interface for simulating the ball and beam system, as well as performing an experiment. The tool will record the simulation/experiment and will save and display the results. I also like how Jeffrey created a problem set for this topic using MATLAB publishing.
