Fundmentals in Robot C and VEX Robotics
What you'll learn
- Assemble a test rig with a motor and several sensors
- Use the Robot C interface to set up motors and sensors
- They will understand and apply motor control commands
- They will write loops and forever loops which have the robot constantly checking sensor inputs
- They will use variable which stores distance to an obstacle and use it to optimise movement
- Students need to have a Windows computer or a virtual Windows app running on a Mac
- Students need to install Robot C Available from VEX . com
- You need to purchase one VEX programming kit
Why Vex Robotics?
VEX stands for Video Editor for XML (Extensible Markup Language). VEX Robotics is the ultimate robotics platform for the 7-10 Digital Technologies Curriculum. VEX Robotics hosts the world's largest robotics competition for students all over the world to compete against one another using a robot of their own design. VEX has text-based coding in the most universal programming language: "C'. It also has a capacity for data management and analysis and finally, VEX has a capacity to use coding and robotics to solve real world problems.
What is special about this course?
After eight lessons, students complete several quite advanced examples of INPUT / OUTPUT programming whereby they control the speed and the direction of a motor by bringing their hand closer to and further from a distance sensor. This task is broken down into the simplest possible steps; in each step students add two to three lines of code, experiment with changing variables and observing the output of the robot. This ensures that they understand not only what each line of code does, but how it does it and what will happen when it changes. This course will help you understand and achieve the skills of VEX robotics.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who just acquired a VEX robotics kit and is keen to get started
- Robotics enthusiasts looking into the VEX platform
- Robotics Enthusiasts looking to program Robot C
Sanjin is a teacher and a robotics engineer with a passion for teaching Coding and Robotics to school aged children. He has spent more than 5 years teaching various age groups in platforms like Scratch, Arduino, Python, Raspberry Pi and Lego Mindstorms.
He is presently working with over 20 schools in Melbourne to help them implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum in a meaningful manner. This means developing learning sequences that help students easily grasp the core concepts of coding and then setting them up with problems that involve higher level computational thinking and integration with various mathematical concepts.
I am a CS graduated Student finding ways to implement automations by AI. I have learned and implemented projects on python, java, node, C and C sharp. I have also used SQL, firebase and Oracle.
I have used selenium and python libraries to implement automation.
I am looking new ways to use OpenCV, tensorflow and much more
