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.
