I’m looking at using SimpleFOC in what will hopefully become a force feedback controller (a strange 1 axis sliding thing for a somewhat specialized application) but I’m happy for it to start much simpler. I’m not looking for detailed answers about how to implement this, just verification that i generally understand what can be achieved with SimpleFOC.
To start i would just like to start with the motor centering the controller and applying more resistance the further you go from center. I plan on using an AS5600 absolute encoder and controlling it with some ESP32 variation and a driver TBD, maybe some Chinese power shield, and a low Kv BLDC.
My basic understanding from reading the documentation is that by using position control to a set angle (coresponding to center) and then modify the torque limit based on the angle error should produce the basic effect I’m looking for. Is this an acurate understanding?
