Motor with encoder
January 28, 2012
Hello everyone. My college has some project organised, to introduce mobile robotics to highschools in my country, and they asked me to design a robot which would be used for that. And it needs geared motors with encoders, and since the only thing I ever used was servos, I need help choosing them.
Robots would be around 1-2kg, and it would be good to be able to carry atleast 1 more kg. Batteries would be 4 AA, either rechargable (4.8V) or normal (6V), so the motors should work for both. They should be as cheap as possible, because if we can lower the cost of one robot we can get more robots! And the shop would have to have around 100 of them.
So I need your recomendations for motors and place to buy them! Thank you very much in advance everyone :)
