VRC Annotated Programming Skills Challenge Sponsored by The REC Foundation
Robots have long had a role in industrial and commercial applications. A key feature of their use is the ability to be programmed to follow exact instructions, with the latest robots about to react with their environment – adjusting to correct for errors and make decisions.
The Programming Skills Challenge is the ideal format to showcase what your robot can do given a full minute of autonomous control.
This challenge is about explaining and demonstrating your team’s autonomous program for the 2020-21 VEX Robotics Competition Change Up game.
6 key things to keep in mind for a successful submission:
- Your video should show not only what your robot does, but include an explanation of how your code is working to perform those actions
- The effective use of sensors should be explained as well as any functions within your code
- Creative and innovative uses of programming or sensors is encouraged
- The last minute of your video should show your complete, uncut programming skills program.
- The program you used in the Programming Skills run shown in your video needs to be uploaded, with all comments or notes included
- The point score earned during your Programming Skills run is not a factor in your submission- a high quality entry may not necessarily have a high score, but effectively explains and documents how the robot’s design and sensors are utilized for an autonomous program that is effective.
We are excited to enter our first ONLINE VEX challenge! We are including a Word document that shows our complete code. Also, we have included a link to a video explaining our coding choices and demonstrating our uncut autonomous routine. Thank you for considering our submission!
