Tipping Point Drivetrain V1

Pros and Cons


  • In this design, only 4 motors are used to power both the power arm and the drivetrain making the motor output most efficient. 

  • We use 4, 200 rpm motors to provide speed and torque at the same time 

  • We have a 16:9 torque gear ratio for the drivetrain to make sure the robot can climb the platform

  • All of the wheels are powered by gears and chains to ensure the robot does not get stuck


  • Took up lots of space due to the multiple gear ratios so the other components may not fit

  • Both the power arm and the drivetrain can not move at the same time

  • The powerarm does not have a gear ratio so lifting the mobile goals may be a problem
