If you’re still using the IDE that VEX Robotics abandoned – This is for you.
☑ Get to know the VEX EDR V5 system and VEX Coding Studio. We’ll use VEX C++ in this course.
☑ Update the robot brain firmware.
☑ Learn to use VEX coding Studio.
☑ Write programs for the robot brain screen.
This is the first of a series of short courses, with short and to the point lessons about VEX Robotics’ EDR V5 hardware and the VEX Coding Studio Software.
/ Please note that VEX Robotics discontinued the VEX Coding studio software. /
/ If you’re still using VCS, this set of courses is some of the only resources still available. /
/ Seeing that C++ is used in the lessons, the examples could also be used for VEXcode Pro. /
In this course, we get to know the components of the new system and begin to explore VEX Coding Studio. I point out and provide links to all the important steps to get your V5 system ready for action and also get VEX Coding Studio installed on your computer. (If you are all set up and using your V5 already, you should probably skip to the VEX EDR V5 – VCS C++ Programs for Motors course.)
