P08208: RP 1 Motor Module First Generation

Mission Statement

Table of Contents

Product Description

A fully functional, open source, open architecture, scalable motor module subsystem for use on the 1 kg (RP1) robotic vehicular platform. Each motor module will have the ability to drive, steer, communicate with a controller, and work cooperatively with any number of motor modules in a number of configurations to drive a robotic vehicular platform capable of carrying a 1kg payload.

Key Business Goals

To provide an open source, open architecture design
To provide an off-the-shelf motor module for the mobility of a 1 kg robot platform
To provide a motor module that is scalable according to payload requirements
