I want 3 Odrives (6 motors) communicating with each other for a 6 DOF robot. I have read all that I see in the forum and the manual of odrive and I (correct me if I am wrong) have come to understand that I have to use the CAN PROTOCOL.
Although I am searching the web, I have some things that I don’t understand.
- What do I need for the Can protocol to be established? Do I need a special module (Can Bus Module) or it can be achieved without any module?
- Do I need a microcontroller for the robot to control everything or I can make do with only the 3 Odrives?
