FRC Logo - Link To MaxBotix Inc., FRC Facebook Page MaxBotix Inc., would like to welcome back all returning students to this years' F.I.R.S.T® competition.

Last year we had an enjoyable time watching teams creating robots during Ultimate Ascent competitions. There were many great robots made, and from what we see lots of creative students working on the robots.

Like we have done the last several years, our Facebook Page will be used to communicate questions that have been asked to us as well our answers. We ask that any questions you have regarding our sensors are emailed to [email protected] to protect team privacy and your unique ideas. After we have answered your question, we will reword it to remove anything specific and post it for other teams to see the solution.

Our MaxSonar tutorials are also available.

First 10 teams to order will receive a free MaxBotix Inc., banner!
