I am using the bldc_tool from Benjamin Vedder https://github.com/vedderb/bldc-tool for Linux.
I plan to have 2 VESCs connected to each other (master+slave) via CAN to have a differential robot (2 wheels + casters). I’d like to send commands and receive data via UART or CAN from the master VESC to a computer. Is this possible? If so how should i configure in the bldc_tool to have this setup?
This is what i tried:
I installed the bldc_tool and in the App configuration there is a “Send status over CAN” checkbox. There is also the App to use. UART would be the option since CAN does not appear here. Then on the side tabs there are the “Multiple ESCs over CAN” checkbox but only for ADC , PPM and Nunchuk inputs. The UART tab input only shows the Baud rate setting.
