Hi Everyone,

I am working on a mecatronics project to control a buggy around a track, which uses sensors to determine where on the track it is and has a separate, rear wheel motor controls.

I want to perform a theoretical calculation to determine the maximum velocity I can go round the 90 degree corners? I know the distance around the corner, and the aim is to use this information to work out the time. Does anyone know how to calculate this?

The overall aim is by knowing tha max velcoity on the corners, I can work out speed on the straights knowing how much braking is requried.

Thanks in advance!

Mistry
