R5-D4 bad motivator

"This R2 unit has a bad motivator."
Luke Skywalker[src]

A motivator or a motivator unit was a device that was primarily used in droids to convert other forms of energy such as chemical or electrical energy into kinetic or mechanical energy. Without a motivator a droid would not be able to move.

A standard type of motivator found in Service droids around 4 ABY was the FV50 unit. Binary motivators were used in starships such as StarSpeeder 1000s.
