I have recently bought a DJI Mavic Mini, played with the SDK, created my own App, interfaced a Microsoft Sidewinder force feedback joystick to it…
And finally jumped to the idea to create a force feedback steering wheel to play with…
So today I acquired an old hoverboard and extracted the motor, which is really nice !
I have found many topics using this kind of motor for forceFeedback wheels. But currently none are using SimpleFoc Library…
I love this one fully 3D printed ! https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/3d-printed-hoverboard-motor-wheel.14454/
I know that this is not a simple project… Il will have to find a way to implement a Forcefeedback controller (PC side) and then to decode the “force commands” sent by the PC to feed them to SimpleFoc library to implement “force effects”. I do believe that starting by Foc torque control would be fine ?
I still have a lot of questions regarding the hardware side:
- what kind of driver should I use ? Vesc ? B-G431B-ESC ? (many DIY ffb Wheels use these devices)
- a custom made board (how hard is it to build one for this kind of motor ?)
Any advice or guideline would be apreciated !
