What does a VEX flashlight do?
The VEX Flashlight provides a source of illumination for a light sensor. It is typically plugged into the power pins of a 3-wire motor port (the two pins furthest from the index tab), and will operate continuously while the VEX microcontroller is powered.
What does touch LED do?
The Touch LED opens up many options for robot customization. The LEDs can be used cosmetically to simulate robot eyes, or just a fun way for the students to make their robot special. The LEDs can be used to indicate robot modes, the status of a button or the state of a software function.
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 coding language does vex robotics use?
Using VEXcode VR and engaging robotics-based activities, the VEX Computer Science curriculum continuum uses the VEXcode block-based coding system as an introduction to coding. Within the continuum, students progress to learning Python, the fastest growing programming language in the world.
What does VEX Robotics stand for?
VEX. To confound, confuse, addle or astound.
What language is vex?
VEX is loosely based on the C language, but takes ideas from C++ as well as the RenderMan shading language. VEX is used in several places in Houdini: Rendering – mantra uses VEX for all shading computation. This includes light, surface, displacement and fog shaders.
What does a limit switch do vex?
Benefits: Limit switches expand the functionality of robots by allowing controlled motion in moving components (e.g., gripper arm). They also allow the robot to better detect its surroundings, by detecting collisions with external objects.
