The AMDC is for motor control experts and novices (who want to become experts).
On the spectrum between a high-end rapid control prototyping platform and a conventional motor drive, the AMDC sits in the middle—in terms of cost, complexity, and being able to implement robust, semi-permanent motor control that can operate autonomously, independent of a local host computer.
The platform has the capability (computation power, I/O, abstraction layers) to actuate new types of motors, but also standard types of motors.
To empower motor control students, researchers, and designers by providing an open-source sandbox for exploring and creating electric motor control platforms.
High performance* electric machines actuated to their full potential.
*(efficient, precise, responsive, robust).
