##### Help on robot motor
« on: July 06, 2011, 08:08:37 AM »
Hi

I am planning to build a small agv
its a three wheeled robot with one in the front which is powered and the other 2 behind are free wheel
I would like to know how do i determine the max load capacity on the wheels when it is loaded and when it is unloaded.

I got the rpm of the wheel and to determine the torque required i need to know the above point

Thanks

Regards,
MC

Look in the Robot Tutorials above for the Motor Calculator.

Hi

I did the calcualtion but I would like to know for eg if the robot weighs 4.5 kg with load 1.5kg
and i have three wheels and only one is driven. driven wheel is slightly larger in diameter compared to the other two free wheels
so how is the weight distributed amongst the wheels.
should i divide 4.5kg(unloaded) and 6kg(loaded) by 3(wheels) to determine the load each wheel can take or how can i calculate the weight taken by the drive wheel and the two free wheels behind

Thanks,

Regards,
MC
