The RMF Calculator is designed to help you decide 'is my motor strong enough for my robot?'
It is a supplement to the robot dynamics tutorial. If you do not understand how to use this calculator, please read the tutorial first.
Keep in mind that you may not require maximum velocity, maximum acceleration, and good hill climbing simultaneously (ie you don't mind your robot being slow if it goes up a steep slope). Determine the various worst-case situations you want your robot in, and only use the highest calculated RMF to select your motor.
Note that all entered values will be saved as a cookie on your computer (if you have cookies enabled) so you don't need to reenter anything on future visits.

Remember, your Motor RMF must be greater or equal to the Results RMF for your robot to acheive your desired specs.
