Linear motion speed

The diameter of a platform wheel is D=140 mm. The length of wheel circumference is L=π·D=439.81mm. The maximal motor speed is wmotor=5200 rpm. The gear ratio is q=100:1. The maximal output shaft speed of a gearbox, which is also a wheel speed is wshaft=wmotor/q=5200/100=52 rpm = 52/60 rotations/sec. The path S, which wheel can move for one second is equal S=wshaft*L = 381.1688 mm = 0.38116 meters. Velocity is S/t (t = 1 second), V = 0.38116 m/s = 1.37216 km/h.

Wheel rotation speed

The same motor system with rotation speed wshaft is rotating each wheel. Hence, the maximal rotation speed is wshaft*2*π = 5.445427 rad/second = 312°/second.

In normal conditions a single wheel will not change direction on more than [-45°,+90°], hence the maximal rotation degree is 90-(-45)= 135°. Hence, maximal time required for each wheel position is (135/312) seconds = 0.433 s.
