Asked by: Jack Didesch
Subject: robot balance
Question: Hi, I need to know if my robot ( which is balancing on one wheel) can use a gyroscope that is just one flywheel to balance forward and back and side to side. I also need to know what weight/speed I need for the motor and flywheel of my robot if there is a formula whereas weight is x. I need to know what rpm of motor to get and how much torque it will need. My robot in the end may weigh 25-35 lbs.will the flywheel be propped horizontally or vertically?
