What is a VEX drivetrain?
Vex drivetrains are assemblies, generally made of wheels, used to traverse the VRC field. Each drivetrain has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
What is drivetrain in robotics?
A drivetrain allows a robot to be mobile by using wheels, tank treads, or another method. A drivetrain is sometimes referred to as a drive base. Drivetrains may also need to travel over obstacles or need to resist being pushed from the side from another robot.
What is the purpose of the drivetrain in VEXcode VR?
Drivetrain Blocks. From driving forward, making precise turns, setting speed, and stopping precisely, VEXcode makes it easier than ever to control a robot.
What are 5 primary components of robotics and what do they do?
The components of a robot are the body/frame, control system, manipulators, and drivetrain.
What is VEX IQ?
VEX IQ is a programmable, snap-together, robotics system. Watch code come alive on a physical robot and learn key STEM skills that easily transition into the real world.
What are industrial robots used for?
Typical applications of industrial robots include welding, painting, ironing, assembly, pick and place, palletizing, product inspection, and testing, all accomplished with high endurance, speed, and precision.
What is VEXcode VR?
VEXcode VR lets you code a virtual robot using a block based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks. VEXcode VR is based on VEXcode, the same programming environment used for VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5 robots. We all know that robots make Computer Science (CS) come to life with real world applications.
What are actuators in robotics?
An actuator is a component of a machine that is responsible for moving and controlling a mechanism or system, for example by opening a valve. In simple terms, it is a “mover”. An actuator requires a control signal and a source of energy.
Where did the term robot come from?
Robot is drawn from an old Church Slavonic word, robota, for “servitude,” “forced labor” or “drudgery.” The word, which also has cognates in German, Russian, Polish and Czech, was a product of the central European system of serfdom by which a tenant’s rent was paid for in forced labor or service.
What is tank drive in robotics?
Tank drive refers to a specific control style where two parallel forces of motion are controlled to create linear and rotational motion. The mechanical system can be composed of tank tread, or any number of wheels, all facing the same direction with two independently controlled “sides”.
What is Vex V5?
VEX V5 represents our fifth generation of education robotics systems developed with 20 years of experience using robotics to teach STEM principles. VEX allows students to hone critical computational thinking skills needed to succeed in both the 21st century’s workforce and in everyday life.
How many eye sensors are on the VR robot?
Eye Sensors The Eye Sensor can detect if there is an object present, and if so, detect the color of the object (red, green, blue, none). A VR Robot has two Eye Sensors – a Front Eye Sensor and a Down Eye Sensor.
Which sensor does the VR robot use with the turn to heading block?
The [Turn to heading] block turns the VR Robot to a specific heading using the Gyro Sensor. The direction the VR Robot will turn (left or right) is determined based on the current heading of the Gyro sensor.
