When selecting a motor for a robot application, it is first necessary to determine the operating environment of the robot, which scenarios are mainly used, and which specific actions and tasks need to be done, and then according to the above situation, the following 6 factors should be considered comprehensively:
1. Torque requirements: Determine the amount of torque needed to perform the desired tasks. This mainly depend on the weight and size of the robot, as well as the tasks it needs to accomplish.
2. Speed requirements: Because different motors have different speed capabilities, it is particularly important to choose one that meets the speed requirements based on the speed at which the robot needs to move.
3. Power supply: Determine the available power supply for the robot. This will help you choose a motor that can operate within the given voltage and current limits.
4. Motor type: There are many types of motors, such as DC motors, servo motors and so on. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Combining the application scenarios of your robot, choosing the most suitable robot motor is the top priority.
5. Control system: Consider the control system you plan to use for the robot. Some motors require specific control mechanisms, so ensure compatibility between the motor and control system.
6. Size and weight: The size and weight of the motor affect the robot's actions. Therefore, it is important to choose a motor that fits within the available space and is lightweight enough to not hinder the robot's movement.
By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision when choosing a motor for your robotic application.
