About me

My name is Mike Bax and I’m an 37 year old mechatronic engineer. I live in the Netherlands and I’ve got two kids.
I’ve got a bachelors degree in Electronics and a Master degree (Twente University) in Mechatronics. My graduation project was in the control theory field, were I build a Furuta pendulum with iterative learning control (Chalmers University). The paper and thesis can be downloaded here:

Nonlinear controller tuning

For 10 years now I’m full time employed by Philips as a system architect, where I work on allsorts of projects. These range from precision industrial machines to consumer electronics to medical devices.
I’ve got a home workshop with quite some nice tools, where I spend a large part of my spare time in building DIY projects.
