Modern Robotics, Inc has been working closely with FIRST® and Qualcomm to create a powerful new control system for the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) competition.

The new system centers on a Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Android device connected to the Modern Robotics Core range of control modules and sensors. These modules connect via high-speed USB to the Android platform and provide all the connectivity required to build FTC robots ranging from a simple platform to kick off experimentation and development to complex competitive robots that will take teams to the FTC Championships.

Electronic Modules & Sensors Kit 

The Modern Roboitcs Electronic Modules and Sensors used by all FTC teams for the 2016 - 2017 season will continue to be used by most FTC teams for 2017 - 2018 and are still 100% legal to be used by both rookie and veteran teams. Modern Robotics Kits are not available through the FIRST storefront and details of the Electronics bundle for FTC can be found at
