I am very new to robotics and electronics. I have been spending a lot of time reading up on the various subject areas.
I am from South Africa.
I wanted to build the $50 robot as my first robot. I ordered the necessary parts from a local supplier (Our exchange rate to the dollar is not too great)
While I wait for the order to arrive I decided to start building my chassis. I appropriated one of my son's Meccano sets as I thought this would make a fairly sturdy base.
I am however struggling to find a local supplier of servo motors. My plan was to let the motor drive on the geared rim of the Meccano wheels.
The question is: Will a servo motor have enough rpm if I drive the wheels in this way? The rim gear on the wheel has 57 teeth.
Would it be an option to use normal dc motors to drive the wheels in this way? The prototyping board I ordered is big enough that I can build two H bridges on it as well.
Any input would be appreciated.
PS. Here is a photo of the chassis:
