REV Robotics is proud to supporter for the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). For more information about the FIRST Tech Challenge, please visit the FIRST Tech Challenge website.
Below, you will find tiles linking to more information on how to unlock the potential of REV products designed for use in FTC.
Over the last few seasons members from the REV team have built different mechanisms to help teams get ideas and get started with building their robot for the year's given challenge. Starting at Kickoff we start rolling out instant reactions, videos, prototypes, and other materials targeted specifically at the game. The goal of the concept videos is to remove some of the frustrations when getting started without removing all of the challenge from FIRST. The challenge is really a lot of the fun!
The main entry point into the 15mm Build System, the FTC Starter Kit provides over 1400 parts to get started building the mechanisms for a FTC robot.

The REV Robotics Control Hub is an affordable all-in-one educational robotics controller. It provides students all the necessary interfaces for robotics and mechatronics projects with multiple programming language options.
The REV Robotics Expansion Hub is an affordable hardware controller which can communicate with Control Hub (REV-31-1595). The Expansion Hub is loaded with hardware interface options to enable driving motors and servos, interfacing with sensors, and communicating with other devices via several protocol options.
The UltraPlanetary Gearbox is a cartridge based modular planetary gearbox designed with 550 motors, like the HD Hex Motor, in mind. Easy to iterate and adjust designs using the pre-assembled and lubricated cartridges to swap gear ratios with easy.
Utilizing the 15mm Linear Motion Kit V2 (REV-45-1507), the 15mm Extrusion Lift Kit offers an assortment of components needed to build an un-powered 3-stage continuous or cascading lift.
Blinkin makes adding LEDs to your robot as simple as driving a motor. Chose the pattern you want and give it the corresponding PWM signal. The REV Robotics Blinkin LED Driver is a compact LED driver module that simplifies controlling both 12V RGB LED and 5V individually-addressable WS2812 LED strips. Blinkin combines internal LED drivers, a 5V power source, and a pre-programmed controller all in one package.
REV Robotics offers a number of digital, I2C, and analog sensors for use as feedback devices on robots.
The REV Hardware Client is software designed to make managing REV devices easier for the user. This Client automatically detects connected device(s), downloads the latest software for those device(s), and allows for seamless updating of the device(s).
