This is the wiki page for a project TP is thinking about.



A rather complicated motion control project I have been contemplating for quite a while requires the ability to control more than one Brushless DC motor. This type of motor is different from your standard DC motor in that it operates more like a three phase AC motor - needing a whole lot more than just a battery and a 10K pot to control. One good thing is that I only need to be able to drive a motor like this in one direction, but compared to the complexity of driving it at all, bi-directionality is minor. Each motor will require a dedicated microcontroller, so unfortunately this will NOT be an Arduino project, at least not at the lower level.

Current Status

This project is currently in the early planning stage.
