Basic definitions I learned in the process-
Bulk Capacitor - Capacitor used to be capable of taking over battery in certain sags. It is
set as close to the input as possible. In this case an electrolytic >=10uF.
Decoupling Capacitor- Capacitor used to give power to certain components or devices
similar function to bulk capacitor, except placed near individual components.
Like a local bulk capacitor.
Rsense -Shunt Resistor used for current sensing on the low side of the h-bridge.
In this case- 7mOhm. Current can be measured by taking the difference between
each side of the resistor to measure voltage drop, then V=IR
Net Ties- Just like a trace, except its meant to be isolated from other traces or
pours around it. Used here for Rsense, where we want to measure difference
between ground and the voltage before the resistor, but we want the traces

Take it for granted. Google how to do it. It's very simple.
PCB guides:
45 degree traces only
Kelvin Connection for Rsense
Always have a ground plane.
