    FIRST Tech Challenge

    It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (up to 15 team members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.

    Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team.

    The robot kit is reusable from year to year and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming. Teams design and build robots, raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach to earn specific awards. Participants are eligible to apply for $80M+ in college scholarships.

    Each season concludes with regional championship events and an exciting FIRST Championship.

     

    FTC Teams are eligible to get 1 kit at a heavily discounted price. To apply for the discount please fill out this application form.

    NavX-2 Micro, 9-axis Inertial/Magnetic Sensor w/Case & Cable

    #71040-2
    $97.00
    (19 In stock)

    The navX-2 Micro is the greatest sensor for orientation in competitive robots. navX2-Micro is a second-generation 9-axis inertial/magnetic sensor and motion processor. Designed for plug-n-play installation onto robots such as those used in the WorldSkills Robotics, FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) and the FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC), navX2-Micro helps build better robots by adding sophisticated navigation capabilities. Significant improvements over the classic navX-Micro allow for more accuracy, decreased yaw drift, and faster boot time. navX-2 Micro includes software algorithms for enhanced sensor calibration as well as KalmanFilter-based data fusion combining gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer data into a 9-axis heading and high-quality magnetometer calibration including magnetic disturbance detection.
      
    In addition to being an Inertial Measurement Unit, navX-Micro capabilities are referred to within the aerospace industry as an “Attitude/Heading Reference System” (AHRS). Kauailabs brings this high-tech AHRS capability to FIRST teams – to use, learn, and explore. navX-Micro is a key component of Kauailabs’ ongoing efforts to make state-of-the-art navigation technologies used in drones and autonomous vehicles (e.g., the Google Car) available to robotics students and enthusiasts as low-cost, open-source products.

    Improvements over navX "Classic":
    navX2-Micro features a new set of IMU & Magnetometer sensors with superior sensor specifications to those on the MPU-9250 sensor. This board has a faster 180Mhz microcontroller and an optimized startup time at 5 seconds versus 15 seconds. In addition, it has a completely new Kalman Filter-based Sensor Fusion algorithm running internally at a blazing fast 416Hz. 
     

    RoboRIO Installation
    It's recommended to connect to the RoboRIO using a USB Mini-B type (Male) to USB A type (Male) connector, navX-Micro can receive both power and also communicate with the RoboRIO. This preferred installation method allows the navX-Micro circuit board to be placed up to 6 meters away from the RoboRIO.
     

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  To avoid having the navX-Micro reset due to a RoboRIO brownout, connecting the navX-Micro to the RoboRIO via USB is highly recommended.
