Vex Robotics Build Report 11, The End / back to see Justin and Peter (Video)

March 6, 2007 at 3:37 pm 3 comments

This post will end the Vex Robotics Build Report Series.

On Saturday, Justin, Peter, and I worked on a new platform because the one we used on Friday was too wide. Then we tested the bot with the 1.0 code but it had some problems so we came out with the 2.0 code. This version uses two limit switches  so if the sound bounces and the robot bumps in to a wall, it will hit a limit switch and sense it. We then modified the code so it worked better.

After we had the code working well, we came out with 3.0 robot and code because thought it would be a good thing to have a touch sensor on the back so you could turn it on, put it on the ground, and then touch the button and it will go. Also, we made the code so if you want it to stop, all you have to do is hit the button and it will stop. If you have EasyC on your computer you can download the 2.0 and 3.0 code with the links below.

The video is of a 2.0 robot with 1.0 code and 2.0 code.

The 3.0 robot with 3.0 code video will be posted here soon…(hopefully tomorrow, April 10 2007)

    nice job I have a vex robot with the tank tread kit. I will get an ultrasonic sensor to add on to my limit switches. The 2.0 code will probably work with my robot slightly modified. The Vex camera is on mine it works well.
