ABSTRACT
In this article, an inverted pendulum system is set up to explore the dynamics of a horizontally driven pendulum which exhibits a great variety of dynamical behavior and appears in a wide range of applications in the field of engineering. The facility is efficient to experimentally explore two kinds of coexisting movement patterns in the horizontally driven pendulum, i.e. in-phase and anti-phase patterns between the angular velocity of the pendulum rod and the direction of the driving forces. Theoretical analysis is applied to reveal the regimes of the coexistence of the two movement patterns, which is promising to control the system to a desired pattern.
