    Question Motorized Trolley that runs on rails

    Hi Guys,
    I am building a motorized trolley that runs on track. i need help on how to design the wheels and axle for it.
    from online studies i found that wheel can be mounted

    on axle and motor coupled to the common axle
    (or)
    individually and motor connected to any one wheel.



    also another way i heard is that each wheel is omni directional like the wheels used for some common trolleys used on land.

    which one of the above is best ?

    the maximum payload possible is 200-250 kg (where trolley alone weighs 100 kg) and maximum travelling speeds are 15 kmph.


    Please let me know if I need to brief any section for better understanding.

    Thanks in advance

    If it is running on a track a common axle would do , since you dont need it to turn.

    You will not find omni wheels for such loads easily either.

    Go for the simplest approach.
