Create Big & Sturdy Robots with Studica Robotics
The Studica Robotics Building System offers everything you need to bring your build ideas to life. It allows you to create big and sturdy robots. This system is perfect for use in the classroom. It is also great for robotics teams competing in events such as WorldSkills Mobile Robotics, FRC, FTC, and WRO.
In fact, as you can see in the picture to the right, Studica Robotics was recently used on the Mobile Robotics Skills Challenge in Thailand. In this article, we will explore the key benefits of the Studica Robotics Building System. We will also take a closer look at the VMX FRC-compatible Training Bot.
Why Choose Studica Robotics?
• Affordability – This robotics build platform offers a variety of motion and structural components.
• No Need for a Machine Shop – All the components work easily together. In general, there is no need for special equipment. If it is necessary, the aluminum material can easily be cut with a simple hacksaw or drilled with a handheld drill.
• Compatibility – The hole pattern allows for compatibility with many existing build systems.
• Strong & Safe - The 3mm thick 6061-T6 aluminum structure is deburred, polished, and blue anodized, making your robot or automation project strong, and safe.
• Programmable - With its open platform, the VMX Robotics Controller can currently be programmed in Java, C++, Python, ROS & even LabVIEW.
• Easy to Design – With STEP 3D files available for each part, you can easily design your robot in Fusion 360, Solidworks, Inventor, or Creo
• Resources – Studica Robotics provides a documentation hub that offers a variety of tutorials and information that are available to you free of cost. Topics covered include software set-up, robotics & control systems, and programming. You’ll also find troubleshooting for both First Robotics and WorldSkills Mobile Robotics.
VMX FRC-compatible Training Bot
This small, sturdy, and lightweight robot is less expensive than your typical FRC robot. If you have a large team, the VMX FRC-compatible Training Bot (FRC Trainer) offers a solution to allow more students to participate in hands-on learning about coding and robotics. This intelligent and autonomous robot uses the VMX Advanced Robotics Controller that can be programmed in C++ and Java. VMX offers a multitude of modern digital communications interfaces and a Linux-based operating system. This allows the user to use it to access most modern devices (e.g., Intel RealSense tracking and depth cameras and LIDAR).
