So for Alfred today, we tested the two motors we brought at Robotmarketplace. When 8v was applied to the motors, the noise generated from the motor was apparent. The only way to damper the noise is by using Jordan's jacket.
The team decided that the only way to reduce the noise is by visiting Wallmart and buying yoga mats to damper the noise. The team also realized that the motor will not always be powered at 8v since there will be a speed controller implemented for Alfred.
