Power your robot, chair, couch, with an overboard! Gives anything two wheels drive! Hoverboard are chinese low cost products. Hacking it can give a meaningful platform to give a two wheels drive platform to anything
### Components Analysis Refer ifixit for a detailed analysis of hoverboard. Interesting parts are :
how do these components interact?
is it possible to control hoverboard externally?
### Daughterboard / motherboard communication
Daughterboard can be used either on right/left. So we only bought 1 daughterboard to decode Daughterboard / motherboard exchanged data. We connected a single daughterboard to left and left motherboard/daughterboard connectors. In this case when rotating daughterboard, wheels are rotating in two different directions.
#### Protocol Probing a logic analyser on daughterboard 4 wire connectors gives some interesting info :
logic level = 3.3V
bit duration ~ 38.10µs => baud rate ~ 26300kbps
there is no clock provided on given lines => Async protocol
