P09203: RP1 Motor Module Gen 2


Table of Contents

Project Overview

The ultimate goal of the development of the Robotic Platform Family is to provide off-the-shelf selections of mobile Robotic Platforms for future design projects, faculty projects or student groups in need of a mobile platform. The motor module would interface with a platform designed to support a 1kg payload. The RP 1kg (RP1) motor module (MM) follows previous mechanical designs of the 10kg (RP10) and 100kg (RP100) models and collaborates with RP1 project P09204.
