The REV DUO line of parts work together for a dual purpose: To create competition-grade robots geared towards participating in the FIRST Tech Challenge or to be used in the classroom for STEM education. REV Robotics is committed to designing high-quality products that make robotics accessible for any skill level. Since 2014, we have continued to iterate and adapt to the educational robotics community's needs, by developing new products and refining our current product selection.
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 REV DUO Build System, the FTC Starter Kit provides over 1400 parts to get started building the mechanisms for a FTC robot.
With over 180 parts, the EDU Kit V2 is specifically created to implement hands-on STEM projects in the classroom. This robotics kit is used to teach a variety of lessons ranging from computer programming and engineering principles to project management.
Similar to the EDU Kit V2, the EDU Kit is a great starting point for hands-on STEM projects.
New and improved, the Mecanum Drivetrain Kit V2 uses Ultra 90 Degree Gearboxes to place the UltraPlanetary HD Hex Motors within the drive channel, giving teams even more flexibility when building their final robot.
Featuring all of the parts needed to build a omni-directional mecanum drivetrain, the Mecanum Drivetrain Kit is designed as a great foundation for any 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 REV Robotics Driver Hub (REV-31-1596) is a compact mobile computing device designed for interfacing with the Control Hub (REV-31-1595). The Driver Hub was designed and built as an easy to use, dependable, and durable device for use in classroom and the competition. It features an Android operating system, built-in dual band Wi-Fi (802.11 ac/b/g/n/w), and support for many off-the-shelf gamepads and HID devices connected through built-in USB ports.
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.
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).
