I am making a tray bot this year and have searched everywhere for an explanation. During driver control, our robot runs fairly well and shows no problems. About a minute or so in though, it starts slowing down. My coach and I suspect that the motors are overheating. Could anybody tell me why this is happening or redirect me to a topic that talks about the same problem?
Here are some specifics:
- cortex said that “motors had passed heat level three”
- robot weighs about ten pounds
- is direct drive with gears in a 1:1 gear ratio connecting the two sets of wheels
If you need any more info, please let me know.
