[Example Project] Electric high power Drift Trike

I like to use the TAPAS board to drive an electric Drift Trike. A Drift Trike has a big front wheel and small rear wheels. The rear wheels consists of a smooth material like PVC so you can slide very easily.

Watch this video!!

The idea is to mount a high power BLDC or PMSM on a Drift Trike. The challenge is to achieve high peak power of approximately 1 kW or more with the TAPAS board for several seconds. Further more I'm able to implement different drive modes like a speed, slipping or traction mode. So you are able to change the behavior of the trike depending on the underground, environmental conditions or simply the way you want to drive.
