    VMX FRC Training Bot

    The Studica VMX FRC 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).

    Benefits for FRC Training/Robotics Programs/Research

    The FRC platform is an extremely open environment – allowing teams to use off-the-shelf, cutting-edge technologies. The FRC Trainer can be used by,

    • Drive Team: Since the FRC Driver station and Dashboard are included, this means new drive teams can immediately become familiar with the tools they will use in competition – before the competition robot is built.
    • Electrical Team: Electrical students can learn hands-on, the key wiring concepts and skills before the using the competition robot.
    • Teachers: Won’t have to design/create custom solutions for teaching programming to FRC students.  Educational material for teaching robotics will be included.
    • Competition Co-Processor:
      • The on-board VMX Co-Processor and Robotics Controller can be powered directly from a 12V battery and is legal for competition use as a vision/motion co-processor.
