Help choosing motor
« on: March 14, 2018, 10:22:32 AM »
Hello, I am trying to figure out what size motor I would need for a project.

robot specs- 4 wheels 6" diameter
                   all 4 wheels with motors
                   mass will be around 100 lbs
                   desired max velocity is 6 feet per second
                   desired acceleration is 3 fps
                   highest incline it will need to navigate 50 degree

This is for a robot lawn mower.  I tried using the calculator to figure out RFM but it assumes that you don't know what size wheels you already have.

Any help will be appreciated

Im not good at this,  but getting a motor with big coils would be more powerful.  obviously.
