I want to use a Roomba as my base unit so I can have return to the charging station when it needs to be feed. However I want to use 12v motors to power the.wheels to my robot because the robot is large. Has anyone done this yet, any help would be.great. I do have a bridge for the 12v motors but it is the hook up I am confused about.

robot I am making because I am using a tristar wheel system. I want the Roomba to control the 12v power car door motors so it can go back to the charger. I like the way the Roomba when it approches the charger it slows way down so not to crash into the docking station. This tells me that.it.may already have a PWM setup. Thanks for the help this has been a great learning experience for me, just when I think I'm close to understanding things I find another road block.
yes as i said too they will handle 60 lbs may be more ,because of the gear box on the omnibot 2000
if using in a different robot design the torque will be diiferent
brush motors on the roomba are much more rated torque
also on the roomba drive motors if using the complete wheel system is does have encoder
i repair and redesign roomba's ,plus repair NEAT XV-11 vacuum cleaners too
and have a lot of parts for both i sell on EBAY
i made a upgrade for the drive motors to give double the torque
design is using the motors i sent you ,plus changes to the H-BRIDGE
