Universal Motor Driver - Dual wheel steering, motor control, and position tracking Objects for P2
I've just released v1.0.1 of our new BLDC Motor drivers.
Initial Public Release
BLDC Motor Driver with steering and position tracking.
- Full dual motor control of robotic platform using 6.5" hoverboard BLDC wheels from Parallax and their BLDC Motor control boards.
Initially, this is available from the releases section of the official repository (it may eventually be added to the p2 obex.)
There is a wealth of information at the project repository so please review the content of the first page as well as the "Additional pages" cited in the table of contents on the first page.
See the Add to your own project page for download and setup instructions.
If you want an easy low-cost platform for a two-wheeled bot (You saw the one I have in the video at one of our P2LFs) I have design files at the repo and, here in the US, you can order from Send-Cut-Send a ¼" thick MDF platform, laser-cut, with height spacers for wheels (to get the castors raised) all for under $35 shipped. The platform also has laser-cut mounting holes for the wheels, the castors, and the Mini-Edge Breakout board with motor boards attached.
From this point forward let's use the github repository issues page for reporting real issues with the use or requesting features. Let's use this forum thread for any general discussion of this capability.
I look forward to hearing what you think of the usability of the new steering and drive control interface for these objects.
Oh, and yes, a draft version of the FlySky R/C control of the platform is provided as one of the demos!
