Nice! At 10W you don't have much power for motors accelerating. How will you address this?
Thanks

Sjur,
Mostly by being slow ;-)
Actually, the servos start up and are at max speed very quickly. We are looking into larger wheels, it looks like we have the torque to handle it. Currently, we travel about 30 feet a minute. We are also looking for different motors. Eventually, the robot will be a Mars probe simulator, so speed isn't all that important to us.
