The video Here shows a motor using rotational motion to move a load forward and then reverse back, without manually switching it to reverse.

  1. How can I program my brushless motor to operate like the motor in the video.
  2. Can I achieve it using what I already have?, if yes, how?
  3. If not, what additional parts (Drivers/Controllers/Arduino) do i need?
  4. What additional software do i need?

What I have:

  1. Brushless motor
  2. ESC
  3. DC Motor Speed Controller
  4. ESC Programmer
  5. RC Program Card Electronic Speed Controller Programmer
  6. Brushless DC Motor Controller, DROK 6.5-24V 12V 12A Sensorless Hallless Three-phase Electronic Motor Speed Driver

    $\begingroup$ there are many tutorials on the web that teach you how to control an electric motor ... you will also require a microcontroller such an an Arduino and some sensors for detecting the carriage end of travel $\endgroup$ – jsotola Aug 4 '19 at 15:30
  • $\begingroup$ @jsotola Most of the videos or tutorials I found online are for stepper motors, not Brushless. Can you point me to a tutorial that is about controlling brushless motor? $\endgroup$ – king amada Aug 4 '19 at 17:10

This motor in video is stepper motor. If you want to move brushless motor that you have, you have to buy ESC that can support 2-way rotation. You can also add a relay that switches 2 phases from ESC, then rotation direction changes.
