Analysis (See Robot Report below for details):
Fig: Derived Equation for the Maximum Mass that can be transported by the drivetrain.

Fig: Free Body Diagram for Robot Base/Chassis
A FOS value of 4.2 for the mass to be transported by the drivetrain was found after analysis. This means that the drive base is able to transport up to 4.2 times more mass than it is actually required to transport.
