Arduino Uno-like board controls three-phase EV motors
Uniti’s “Uniti ARC” is an open source, Arduino Uno compatible microcontroller board, designed for controlling three-phase motors in electric vehicles.
Swedish electric car startup Uniti calls the Uniti ARC “the world’s first open-source commercial development board for three phase motors with Arduino Uno compatibility.” Together with an optional ARC motor shield and a free software suite built around the Arduino IDE, Uniti ARC is designed for makers, startups, educators, and others who want to prototype three-phase-motor electric vehicles, says the company. Uniti is making its own electric car prototype using the platform.
