***CONTEST UPDATE: Hey guys! Im so glad to see so many of you posted your ideas on this video, I see some great potential in you and many great ideas on what applications to use these principles on.
KEEP IT UP!!!
Frank Chou is the winner of the NEW Rev 2.0 Board, as his explanation was extremely accurate to what I did in the video.
It took me a while to arrive at a solution, tried many approaches, but this solution gave good results while being quite simple: Each motor is in a closed loop of its own, and the Setpoint being fed to them is calculated as the mean between both their positions :
Setpoint = (posA+posB)/2; //setpoint is the average between both motor positions
I will make a more detailed video soon, in the mean time, keep playing!!!
In this video I show 2 brushless (BLDC) motors interacting with each other with an interesting feedback setup.
More information to come. Also find more tutorials in my other videos, you are welcome to search the channel!
