Power Sources for Small Robots

  title={Power Sources for Small Robots},
  author={Kevin Dowling},
This report is a discussion, evaluation and comparison of potential sources of electrical power for small mobile systems. Power sources are an inevitable challenge in the design of portable and small mobile systems, especially robotic systems. Power systems cannot be an afterthought and, if left to final design stages, can result in severe and adverse effects on the system, such as excess weight, size, heat and operational limitations. Power system alternatives include batteries, fuel cells and… CONTINUE READING
