The drivetrain subsystem is the system responsible for the motor and transmission of the motors power through the rotating yoke to the wheel, driving the RP1 robotic module. The drivetrain subsystem will be directly responsible for meeting a range of velocity and acceleration. It will have shared responsibility with the robustness, ease of access, ease of repair, and smoothness requirements.

Final Drivetrain Design
Technical FilesBelow are all of the design files for the drivetrain subsystem for the RP1 Robotic Module
This document explains the theory for different motor operations and it shows graphs that enable the selection of optimized components. It also displays the RP1 system response for our selected setup. Motor Operation and System Responses
This Excel Spreadsheet shows system responses, motor efficiencies, and power ratings for a variety of different available gear ratios. Everything can be edited to show how the system would respond to different changes. Motor Operation Spreadsheet
