    VMX Vision/Motion on MicroSD for FRC & FTC


    Part# 70169

    VMX Vision/Motion Toolkit for FRC (VMX-rtk) is a pre-configured micro-SD Card used twith the VMX Robotics Contoller to turn it into a Vision/Motion Controller which can be used for FRC or FTC. It contains up-to-date open-source robotics tools, including:

    • Raspbian Buster:  Current Raspberry Pi Operating System
    • Mono:  C# language run-time and development environment
    • Mjpeg-streamer:  Video Streaming Server
    • ROS Kinetic:  Robot Operating System (including core communications and desktop tools)
    • VMX ROS Node - Network Access via ROS to all VMX-pi functionality - CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT
    • VMX HAL: Access via C++, Java, Python and C# to all VMX-pi functionality from the host processor Requires VMX-pi circuit board
    • ??OpenCV:  Vision Processing - including C++, Java and Python interfaces
    • WPI Network Tables: Network communication with RoboRIO for FRC Includes support for C++, Java and Python
    • WPI CSCore: Access multiple cameras, configure camera settings, acquire images and stream video HTTP stream(s). Includes support for C++, Java and Python
    • ?NTPD:  Network Time Protocol Daemon?
    • xGalaga:  Classic video game from the 70s?

    VMX-rtk is pre-installed onto a high-quality Samsung EvoPlus 32Gb, Class 10/UHS-1 grade SD Card, selected to support the maximum SD card bandwidth usable on a Raspberry Pi 3 and 4.

    VMX-rtk includes approximately 16Gb free SD card space for robot applications, storing acquired images/videos and logs.

    VMX Robotics Controller


    The Studica VMX is a powerful robot controller,

    • Enables Tele-op and autonomous control
    • Supports Java and C++, future support for ROS
    • Integrates the navX-IMU, a Linux based controller, Gigabit Ethernet, USB3 ports and built-in Wifi/Bluetooth. 
    • Can be used an a Robot Control System or Vision/Motion processor
    • Supports Open CV, Tensor Flow, SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping 
    • Step File

    The Studica VMX leverages five recent key technology developments,

    • Highly-integrated, inexpensive, WiFi-enabled, multi-core Linux computing platform with lots of USB IO for expansion
    • 32-bit ARM Microcontrollers incorporating sophisticated I/O and digital communications engines
    • Low-cost MEMs Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)
    • Powerful software providing rich libraries and tools for developing robot software in C++, Java
    • CAN bus for high-speed, real-time communication between devices

    The Studica VMX Technology Enables,

    • Far richer development environments and tools
      • Because VMX is much more than a robot controller – it is a powerful, Linux-based   desktop computing platform with network/monitor/keyboard/mouse support.
    • Very powerful software features
      • State-of-the-art software development GUIs (e.g., VS Code) libraries and tools (drive-  train kinematics, path-planning, vision processing, autonomous navigation,   performance data acquisition/playback)
    • Access to cutting-edge sensors (for use outside the competition)
      • 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
