How do I use a VEXnet key?
Tether the USB port on the VEXnet Remote Control to the USB port on the Cortex using a USB A-to-A cable. 3. Power the Cortex ON. After a few seconds, ROBOT and VEXnet LEDs will blink green, indicating that the Cortex and VEXnet Remote Control have successfully paired.
What is the purpose of a VEXnet key?
The VEXnet Key 2.0 provides wireless communication between VEX ARM® Cortex®-based Microcontroller and VEXnet Joysticks. Think of the VEXnet Key 2.0 as the “radio” that enables remote control. This key utilizes the new VEXnet 2.0 communication protocol over a custom 2.4 GHz radio.
What is a VEX Cortex?
The VEX Cortex Microcontroller coordinates the flow of all information and power on the robot. It has built in bi-directional communication for wireless driving, debugging and downloading using the state of the art VEXnet 802.11 wireless link. The Microcontroller is the brain of every VEX robot.
What is Vex V5?
