We made our robot longer so that the robot could have more torque and we wanted to add a touch of our creativity.
Gear Ratio is 5 to 3 .
Why? Because we wanted our robot to go fast and for our robot not to lose as much torque so it can pull weight.
Input RPM: 105 RPM
Output RPM: 175 RPM
Input Torque:1.67 N•m
Output Torque:2.78 N•m
Wheel Diameter : 12.5 cm
Wheel radius: 6.25 cm
Vt= 114.5 cm/s
Va = 93.03 cm/s
We wanted to make our robot to pull the most weight in the shortest amount of time.
We changed our gear ratio from 1:1 to 3:5
We added bigger wheels for more torque.
Removed unnecessary weight from robot .
Added more weight up cront of robot to have more torque upfront.
added a 16 hole bar to keep the motors in place .
