Graph bellow is found from motor parameters, by ramming the robot to the wall.
- As expected, static is lower than kinetic friction coefficient.
- These aren't final results, because 3 measurements at one speed means nothing.
- It is essential to conduct full experiment at different speeds and normal loads, in order to achieve force vs speed load graph and compare with DC motor load graph.
- Next: Full experiment conduction with PU and silicone rubbers.
