    Hello. I am also trying to do a project on regenerative braking using the ciruit that you have given. I wanted to know that did you manaully switched the DPDT for cutting of supply from motor? How can we switch it automatically?

    Accelerometer? No depression of accelerator? Oh, and how about foot-on-the-brake?

    I mean, there are many ways to detect that the car is slowing down besides the driver manually throwing a switch. I would think the brake pedal, how far it is depressed, would be a good guide of badly the driver would like to stop. The other methods would cause deceleration when the driver may want to just coast.
