I am just having a little trouble visualizing how I am going to solve this issue, if it even is an issue. I am trying to make a mobile robot that will carry my sensor module. It will have four wheels, and therefore four of these motors : http://www.robotshop.com/ca/en/vex-2-wire-393-dc-gear-motor-motor-controller-29.html.
These are rated at 7.2V. How would I go about powering these? I have a 7.2V lipo battery. I know that if I plug the battery in through the DC jack, i can access the voltage using the vin pin. But would having the battery power the arduino and the four motors be too much? I am assuming in this case, I would use a seperate battery for the four motors and a battery for the arduino.
How would I split the battery(which only has two wires, red and black) into 4(sets of) wires for the motors? Sorry if this is a stupid question, and is this a good method to power the motors?
