Odrive startup with arduino


#1

Hi.i will use 6.5 inch hoverboard hubmotors with encoder or hall sensors inside.
My question is , when i connect arduino to odrive… do i need to calibrate motor and encoder before connect to arduino? Or arduino will handle the calibration of motor and encoder…

You can either set the calibration as startup procedure so ODrive will automatically calibrate on startup,
see here how to do this!

Or you can send the callibration commands from the Arduiono!
For this you can use normal serial communication, you have to send commands that look like this.
