    Hi I am looking into Hall effect sensors to measure the rpm of a small robotic wheel. I was just woundering if i can use a simple hall effect sensor then put a small magnet on the wheel x

    The small Honywell SS4xx are a good candidate, but if the wheel has a fairly high RPM and/or low mass, you may have to counter balance the magnet.
