With this controller gaining more and more usage in the combat robot world we robot dudes will need some special features that wouldn't normally be necessary for skateboards.
I was thinking of diving into the firmware modification myself, but I'm hoping somebody who is more familiar with the project could maybe give it a go, or at least tell me if it is even possible.
So in combat robotics it's possible for one of the drives to fail mid-match. So even though information needs to be shared across controllers having one controller drop out needs to not affect the others.
The function I need to see right now is when multiple Motors are connected to the same load. I would like each controller to have its own pwm speed input, but have the controllers share the current equally through CAN. So what I am thinking is that controller will look at the amperage of the other controllers and put out the same amps as the highest number.
Ideally there would be a Zone around zero, say +- 2% where no braking would occur, then another Zone around zero say from +- 2% to +-5% where braking would occur down to zero, and then speed control from +- 5% to +- 100%. The braking and coasting zones could be reversed if necessary.
Is this even possible?
