@csquared0: You only need one; See Honda HOT Drive System

I've seen that before -- I would LOVE one of these!!!


Maybe for my next robot...

"Unless anyone offers a better suggestion, I'm looking at 4-inch-diameter FXA156 (4202) transwheels from the folks at Kornylak Corporation."

You only need one;

@Steam Kid: Ref your query on comparing motors. Change to a common system of measurements...

It's amazing how it's only when you come to want to do something that you realize how little you know LOL  Thanks for the advice -- I'm learning so much -- it's great :-)

@ Max. Ref your query on comparing motors. Change to a common system of measurements, I prefer metric in this case and N.m, Using Newtons work of Force= Mass x Acceleration (F=ma) convert 0.78kg to Newtons by muliplying by g (accelation due to gravity 9.81 m/s/s) this gives 7.65N-cm. Then convert cm to m by dividing by 100, 0.0765N-m then multiply by 1000 to get mN, hence 76.5mN-m, so motor 2 is better by 2.5%. I've been racking my brains to remember the formulae to calculate the speed/accelaration to weight section, but it currently escapes me.

@salbayeng: OK stumbled on this while looking at something un-related...

Wonderful -- thanks for the info -- I'm now contemplating furiously :-)

OK stumbled on this while looking at something un-related: it's an encoder compatible with those little 30mm gearmotors:

http://www.robotshop.com/en/lynxmotion-qme-01-quadrature-encoder.html

Robotshop has omni wheels ($4 to $10) and motor brackets , so you can build the whole thing from parts.

encoder :  RB-Lyn-217   $31   (400ppr optical)

Motor :  RB-Hsi-05      $22

Bracket :  MMT-02   $8

(Note the 400PPR will be too high a countrate for the simple interrupt type scheme I suggested earlier.)

-------------

Ahh here we go 

http://www.robotshop.com/en/pololu-gearmotor-encoder-2274.html

 

$36 gets you motor + encoder (they have a couple of different speed options), this is a a nice planetry gearbox as well.

It's only a 1" motor , 4mm shaft, maybe too small?

 

----------------------

 Note the three wheel base you were looking at is back in stock on 11 november anyway.

Interesting yes, but not so profitable.  The company (Imetrix) I built that sensor for went bankrupt in 2002.  The patent application died with the company.

@salbayeng: Have fun!

I will do so -- thanks for all the advice -- keep watching for my future columns on this robot topic.

@Douglas: I once built a sensor to track the slimey encrusted bottom of a ship for a ship hull inspection robot...

Wow -- it sounds like you have a mega-interesting job!!!

@Susan: I'm just saying that school boys can squeal as much as girls, and some of them even have higher voices for a time.

OK, who have you been talking to? That was a one-time incident and I have an excuse!!! :-)

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
