What factors should be considered/evaluated for a battery for small-scale robots?

The core challenge revolves around bridging the energy gap required to power intelligent electronic functions.

Attaining high energy density, excellent rate capability, prolonged cycle life, and optimal safety.

Lifetime capacity or energy becomes paramount in guiding robot design.

Reliability and durability of batteries for small-scale robots under different operating conditions also need to be evaluated.

Sometimes, batteries have to work under extreme temperatures and pressures that are inherently harmful to batteries. In addition to advances in materials, a strategic approach to mitigating these multifaceted challenges involves the integration of sensors, monitors, and temperature control systems directly into the battery.
