I want to install a electric motor to make my parents garage doors automated
. Now I dont have any mech background regarding torque/rpm requirements to move a certain object at a certain speed. From what ive seen at other peoples houses is a battery that look likes a conventional car battery 12V to power the motor for the doors. So before I can start, reverse engineering is required, meaning I must first pick the motor I will be using and then designing a controller for that motor.
Any tips/hints is appreciated on what type of motor I must go with and power,torque,rpm ratings.
have a good day
PS. really keen to use the arduino in the controller and the remote to open the doors.
