Logic supply is the voltage that drives the logic/microcontroller - usually 5V or 3.3V,
Current sensing is well... Sensing the current through the motor (driven by a higher voltage than your logics) to keep a max. on the current. If eg. a stepper motor is used, this keeps it from burning the windings at stand still (if properly calculated).

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
