I am in my first robotics class in college. We are building a robotic arm that is mounted to a base with wheels. We will be using an accelerometer to control the arm with gestures,4 buttons to control the driving and a flex sensor to control the gripper of the arm and an arduino uno. We are using 9 DC motors to make the robot move. 4 of them are for the wheels and 5 are for the arm. The wheels and arm will have a separate power supply. The arm is already designed to use 4 D batteries.Can an arduino uno run 9 motors at one time? Any other suggestions?
(maybe if they are super small servos then yes, I don't know how big the armn will be).
