Looking for a feature that if the host sending commands to the roboclaw in the form of a heartbeat. If the heartbeat stops after X amount of time then the roboclaw will stop all motor movement. Had a case that stopped a program from running and didn't catch that the last command sent was a low-speed setting that wasn't enough to turn the motor with a load and ended up burning up the motor.
Seems like a reasonable feature to add in particular for use in situations that have negative outcomes if the motor isn't turned off when a controlling program stops.
