Closed loop PID control of a DC motor

After getting the DC motor to work nicely with my PS3 joystick, I continued by building in a control system using the PID algorithm. A feedback based control system is very important for advanced robotics, as it makes sure that

Open loop DC motor control with a PS3 controller

The next stage of my robot project is to make software talk to hardware. Previously I mentioned how I translate PS3 controller data into something useful for a robot. Before getting into complex real-world control, I wanted to check that
