Please help, I want to make a motorized wheelchair controlled by arduino


#1

So ive seen some youtubers making rc’s with an arduino, L298N driver, and 2 motors and i wonder if i can apply the same concept but replacing the motors with 2 10rpm motors for controlling a wheelchair. will it be powerful enough? and wont the driver burnout with a more powerful motor?

In theory, it’s possible to do something like this. However, keep in mind that the wheelchair is carrying a heavy load, therefore you’ll need strong powerful motors, with gear and an appropriate power source. It’s really a trial an error type of project - you’ll need to try different motor and driver options and see how it works.
Good luck! Keep us posted.
