Roccobotics builds high-quality mobile robots for law enforcement and military applications. The company was formed by members of FIRST robotics team #233 "The Pink Team," after a community outreach project in which we built a robot for our local police department here in Rockledge, Florida.
We believe that robots can help save the lives of police officers and can be affordable at the same time. In an effort to make robots more accessible to police departments, Roccobotics has come up with a unique plan to put together robot kits, which will include all the components necessary to build a fully functional police robot. These kits will be sold to other FIRST robotics teams around the country, who will then assemble and sell them to their own local police departments (or other defense team). This will not only provide the teams with an excellent off-season community outreach project that hones their skills as robot builders, but will act as a fundraiser that can easily pay for the cost of registration for a regional competition event. All in only a couple weekends worth of work! This "win-win-win" scenario will provide fundraising money for both your team, and our team, all while producing a robot for your police department with far more capabilities than comparable commercially avaliable systems.
We are in the process of getting a patent on the robot design, and are also currently putting all the details for the program together. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions in the mean time.
