JavaScript: ESC Programming and Brushless Motors on Intel Galileo

Previously: On-Board: Intel Galileo Programming with JavaScript and Node.js, and JavaScript: Verifying Analog Write on Intel Galileo

At Bocoup, we’re commited to exploring JavaScript hardware programming; as a result of those efforts we’re excited to share a breakthrough today:

This is especially exciting as it marks the first time ever that a JavaScript program was used to directly control an ESC and Brushless Motor (i.e., no Firmata intermediary), which requires relatively non-trivial hardware and software coordination. This breakthrough was actually only one part of a much larger project that we’ll be publishing very soon!
