Makerspace presentation set on motor controller design

By From page A4 | June 08, 2014

On Wednesday at 7 p.m., Jim Stewart will present his design for the electric race car motor controller which he, along with the Radlamp Race Team, recently took to the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo.

Radlamp’s electric race car was the only entry in the Power Racing Series to sport a home-brewed motor controller. Stewart will discuss the hardware and software design, and how both evolved during development.

The presentation will be at the Davis Makerspace in Tim Spencer Alley behind Woodstock’s Pizza. The Radlamp race car itself was shown last Wednesday. This week’s talk will delve further into the electronics and programming involved.

Both talks are part of a continuing series of demonstrations at the Makerspace, all of which are free and open to the public.
