I want to try my hand at a robot vehicle.
December 3, 2012
Good day to you all,
Thank you for having such a great and informative page. I’m sure there are dozens of threads about this, rather then sifting through tons of pages…
I want to build a vehicle using a motor (?) a capacitor or two, a few switches and a power supply. I want the actuators/switches to change the polarity of the capacitors when it comes in contact with say…a wall, thus making it reverse.
As for the motor, can I use one and employ some sort of torque converter for wheels? Should I use separate motors for each wheel?
I’ll also need a battery pack; should I go with higher voltage and just step it down?
Lastly, what does anyone think of using PSPICE to put the circuit diagram together? It sure would make the calculations easier, you know ideal vs. real and all that jazz. Anything you can offer would be greatly appreciated, exception being snark and sarcasm. Thanks.
