Use this tools to compute, the resulting robot speed, the required motor RPM, and the corresponding wheel diameter. Solve for Vehicle Speed: Equation: Speed = (RPM (diameter * PI) / 60) Solve for Motor Speed: Equation: RPM = ((60 * speed) / (diameter * PI)) Solve for Wheel Diameter: Equation: Diameter = ((60 * speed) […]
