RobotC by Robomatter gives students an introduction to the C-programming language, an industry standard. RobotC includes commands and tools designed specifically for VEX IQ, including motor and sensor configuration, multitasking, and debugging. Sample programs are also included.
RobotC is also used in high schools for programming the VEX robots.
The RobotC Virtual Worlds Curriculum Companion aligns with the RobotC curriculum. Students download their ROBOTC code to the virtual world interface, select their robot type (VEX IQ, VEX, Lego, NXT) and select an activity from:
- Movement program using motors and encoders
- Remote control program using signals from joysticks and buttons. Requires the Logictech Remote Control.
- Sensing – program using feedback from a variety of sensors.
- Utility tables; choose from teaching tools (calculate thresholds, turns, and distances) and open-ended challenges (over 35 challenges available).
