The Studica VMX FRC-compatible Training Bot (FRC Trainer) is a smaller, sturdy, lightweight, and less expensive robot than your typical FRC robot. If you have a large FRC team, often only a handful of students get to learn how to create and program your team’s costly competition robot. The FRC Trainer solves this problem and is ideal for groups of two to three to participate in hands-on learning in a classroom environment. Schools can equip their labs with multiple FRC Trainers, benefiting from the great value and compact size. Students can even take it home with them!
This affordable solution is intended for:
- FRC teams that want to learn and train on a smaller and more affordable robot,
- Schools looking for a way to teach FRC robotics in the classroom.
- Schools that want to teach coding in the classroom through robotics.
The FRC-compatible Trainer is an intelligent and autonomous robot that uses the VMX Advanced Robotics Controller which can be programmed in C++ and Java. VMX’s multitude of modern digital communications interfaces and Linux-based operating system allow users to directly access most modern devices (e.g., Intel RealSense tracking and depth cameras and LIDAR).
