What is a VEX Controller?
The Controller is at the center of what makes VEX IQ robots fun to build and easy to use. VEX IQ allows you to build a robot and drive it immediately, giving instant success and testing the robot. Every kid already knows how to control a VEX IQ robot from playing video games.
How do you make a VEX robot 90 degrees?
Program your robot to turn exactly 90 degrees to its right! Place two pieces of tape so they form 90 degree angles. Place your robot so it faces along one piece of tape, and program it so that it turns to face directly along the next piece.
Which way does the robot turn with negative steering?
A value of 0 (zero) will make your robot drive straight. A positive number (greater than zero) will make your robot turn to the right, and a negative number will make your robot turn to the left. The farther the steering value is from zero, the tighter the turn will be.
