Drive Systems – Success Through Interdisciplinary Approaches
There is much more to consider than just the design and the motor selection. Interdisciplinary thinking, specific engineering knowledge, depth of experience, and a clear understanding of the requirements are critical factors.
DC Motors as Generators
Both brushed and brushless DC motors can be operated as generators. However, there are some important points to consider when designing the drive.
Power Density in Robotics
One of the basic requirements for the drives of mobile robots is high power density. For robots, this usually means high torque while taking up the smallest possible space.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
