Let's Make Robots!

How do you know if your motors will be strong enough?

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the LMR community and want to build my first robot. I'm a linux enthousiast so for brains I have an beagleboard. This has an 500MHz arm processor and runs on 5Volt at 2 watt on full load. http://beagleboard.org/

It also has 3 serial interfaces so I would choose a serial motor controller.
