It sounds like you should be looking at an rc car not a skate board, and there is a good amount of open source stuff for object tracking, but I don’t think there is any ready made software for rc cars to do that, and gps would be too inaccurate for the road. Perhaps you could look in to having someone write you something, if you put a target on your bike it might be doable, a lot of work, but at least feasible, but I am by no means knowledgeable about object tracking ect. so I would double check everything I said. And much better to post on a forum for software/firmware/cs questions.

what you could do is used a brushed dc motor and have wired voltage control to the motor and just run the motor in reverse to break, it would be inefficient and kinda ghetto, but hey, if you want to make it supper cheap, it would work, though im not sure how powerful your breaks would be. Interestingly enough, the original esk8 boards used dc motors.


#215

do you have the correct wheel pulley for your wheel type. The way the pulley should center its self, because it should fit tight enough to center its self.

Whet is the ‘start new thread’ box. Do I have to type something on a random thread ( to participate ) first as a new member ?


#223

You can’t start new threads right off the bat as a new member.

@Eretron - you will need the 218mm trucks if you want to run dual 6374 motors as they won’t fit on standard caliber II trucks

not sure how wide supercarve trucks are so I can’t confirm that 2 x 6374 motors will fit on those.

Motor specs are on the website:
Shaft Length: 23mm
Length of motor including shaft: 102mm
Length of Motor Can: 69mm
Width of Motor Can: 63mm

let me know if you would like any other measurements and I will take them off the motor

I have a question, I was running 2 4s 5000 mah lipo batteries in series, and one of them to expand becasue I overheated it and I will have to replace it. for next time when I install the new battery what is it that could cause it to overheat? what should I regulate more on the vesc programming? (also I was running it through a 6374 190 kv motor)
