One of our team members Raphael Chang has been working on this ESC for the past year. This weekend, we decided to make some improvements!
What it does
We added two features to the ESC. We started by adding a velocity control mode. The ESC accepts a velocity setpoint and performs feedback control to control the motor at the desired speed.
Additionally, we wrote a ROS driver for the speed controller. This will enable applications of the ESC in robotics. The ROS driver communicates with the ESC via a serial interface.
