Alternative controller?

Hi all,

So I’m quite new to the ODrive project. I’m interested in using it on an rc project I’m doing and notice how you recommend using a microcontroller like an Arduino.

Given the nature of my project I know there isn’t going to be code on the Arduino library that I can just drag and drop into place and I don’t know C++ coding language.

I do, however know python, which I know Arduino doesn’t run. I was wondering if any of you could point me to a similar microcontroller to the Arduino but one that can run python so I can write the code as appropriate. Is there one you guys can recommend that works well with the ODrive board?


Probably should’ve mentioned I am trying to use it with CAN

There aren’t really microcontrollers that run Python – there’s MicroPython, but it’s not the same, and I’m not sure there’s easy ODrive support there.

I’d probably recommend a Raspberry Pi or something – CAN is pretty easy with that :slight_smile: CAN Bus Guide — ODrive Documentation 0.6.9 documentation
