The new generation of our Empathy Swarm robots is running with FOC motor control! Together with Richard Unger we developed the Whisper boards to create a more dynamic moving robot with much lower power consumption, going from 3 1/2 h to 2 days of runtime!
100 robots means 300 wheels, means 300 tiny FOC boards of 2 x 3 cm. So we are very grateful to our sponsor BTG Elektronik to do the assembly of more than 20.000 SMD parts for us! We also appreciate the support from Eurocircuits to supply the PCBs! In such a difficult year with the global chip crisis, it is fantastic to be able to count on the professional support of our sponsors! Thanks a lot to BTG Elektronik and Eurocircuits!
Also thanks a lot to Richard Unger for his brilliant designs and knowledge exchange! It’s great to meet new friends with the same passion and see the results of this kind of inspired fruitful collaboration!
