After moving on from FRC to college, I have joined my college’s robotics team. We are working towards the NASA Lunabotics competition, and are evaluating the possibility of using REV NEO motors on this year’s robot.
I found the owners manual for the SPARK MAX here, and while it gives detailed information on the CAN frames it broadcasts periodically, there isnt information on how to control the motor controller directly over CAN.
Does anyone have any experience with using these outside the FRC system? I am assuming I can’t use the distributed REV libraries due to dependencies on WPI and the roboRIO.
