    Thanks!
    Review by Shelton
    We were getting the "wheel stuck" message. Ordered the replacement from RobotShop. The part went in easily and it has been working great ever since. Thanks RobotShop!

  • Neato Wheel Motor
    Happy Customer!
    Review by C_Manner
    Our Neato robot was scheduled to clean our house M-F at 8:00 a.m. and after a year we started seeing the error message, "Wheel stuck." There was nothing stuck in the wheel so we ordered a motor; it shipped same day, arrived promptly, and was easy to install. The message cleared out and we're very pleased to have our little butler back on a regular cleaning schedule.

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

Have you wondered why some robots can run much longer than others, or why UAVs can only hover for a few minutes? The battery pack you choose is certainly important, but there are many additional factors which have a huge influence on the total time your robot operates between charges.

Basics: What is a Motor Controller?

Posted on February 20, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

A Motor Controller is a device that acts as intermediary between your robot’s microcontroller, batteries and motors. A motor controller is necessary because a microcontroller can usually only provide roughly 0.1 Amps of current whereas most actuators (DC motors, DC gear motors, servo motors etc.) require several Amps. The current a motor consumes is related to [...]

The Sabertooth is for brushed DC motors. The Cytron DC motor controller is as well, and is compatible with the BotBoarduino. Note that you will need a cable connector.
