Hi ! I'm planning to build a robot using ROS as software platform.

The robot have to be capable of having : - 18 servomotors - 4-5 DC motors - 2-3 Step by step motors - A lot of captors - Battery ( 12V, probably NiMh )

I have trouble selecting the correct hardware configuration to fit all that in while keeping the electronics rather small. ( We're talking about a wheeled cylindric robot of about 350mm/13in of height and 200mm/8in of diameter )

So if you have any experience in the domain or have built similar systems, I'd be delighted to learn the hardware you've been using or that you would recommend.

Thank you for your time,

This question is out of the scope of ROS answers. Although you mention that you'll be using ROS, your questions don't relate to it.
