Build Better Robots

Kauai Labs helps students, researchers and hobbyists Build Better Robots® with powerful, easy-to-use, low-cost:

  • Robot Navigation Sensors
  • Robot Controllers/Co-processors
  • Robot Software

Robot Navigation Sensors

Kauai Labs Navigation Sensors combine modern sensor technologies with signal processing, sensor fusion and calibration. The result: precision, easy-to-use measurements of robot orientation, motion and physical surroundings enabling advanced navigation features.

navX-MXP and navX-Micro have been used on thousands of robots in FIRST FRC, FIRST FTC and World Skills robotics competitions – including several recent world champion robots.
