I’m Adam, a hacker who’s versed in electronics design and is dis-satisfied with how every electric scooter I’ve ever bought has broken both physically, and occasionally my bones too.
For the past few months or so I have been developing a new motor controller which characterizes the motor in such a way as to extract the maximum possible torque and speed out of the machine. I gave up trying to follow the code in VESC, so it is not a vesc derivative --it is a completely different animal with new software.
I plan to support dual motors and will have advanced features to ensure I don’t for example, destroy batteries. Given how much time I’ve been investing it probably makes sense for the motor controller to find its way into other people’s esk8’s as well.
What would be important to have in a controller, y’all? I also don’t have a name for it…
