1. Find out how many amps your motors draw in total. Lets say the total is 10 amp per hour draw, then you need a 10ah battery for it to last one hour continuous and a 40ah battery for it to last 4 hours continuous.  ( this does not take into account the electronics current draw)

What exactly are you building , some giant robot ,  ;) ;)???

2. Google search it for a while , it should probably answer you.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
