Battery powered Jetson protections

Hi everyone,

I am planning to power a Jetson controller for a wheeled robot (maybe we start with the Nano and then we use a Xavier NX) from a “car battery” it has 24V and 40Ah. This battery also drives motors which can consume up to 35 Amps.
As far as I had read, it would work with a voltage regulator (thinking on this one and a resettable fuse before the barrel jack as I read in another post.

Would be the motors demand a problem? Or if I am missing something else in this configuration? I could also add one more battery but that would make the robot more complicated.

Thanks a lot in advance,


Hope someone has such experience can be shared. For Nano power supply, the key point is to keep the supply stable, a super capacitor or battery will be helpful.

So after more readings, the voltage regulator modules include capacitors that also help to stabilize the voltage but they are small. Now the next question would be how much capacitance do I need so I will dive into that. Thanks!
