What is the maximum speed that this device can move?

admin

It is a relatively slow thing – up to 1-1.5m/s. Besides, there is a trade-off between the accuracy of movements and the speed.

In general, Marvelmind robots are not fast intentionally. If everything, absolutely everything goes wrong with the robot, it must remain safe, i.e. it must not be too heavy and too fast.
