VEX IQ Challenge STEM Research Project Sponsored by The REC Foundation

The focus for the VEX IQ Challenge is to have students learn about the relationship among the STEM fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Each season one of the fields is featured, providing students with an opportunity to learn more about how it relates to robotics and how what they are learning in the classroom has a practical application in their lives.

This season the STEM research project will feature technology, with a specific focus on sensors.   Technology is the branch of knowledge that focuses on practical purposes in life.  It is the machinery and equipment that is developed using engineering.   Sensors are electronic components that produce an output by detecting changes in its environment. It produces a signal notifying the user to the changes that have been detected.  Gyro Ultrasonic Range Finder, Color Sensor, Touch LED, Bumper Switch are the sensors that are featured in the VEX IQ Challenge program.

Driverless Cars

lsimon863143050

Driverless cars are compared by their levels, let's start at level 0 and continue. Level 0 is nothing but a usual car. Level 1 is manly controlled by humans but uses the brakes automatically for safety. Level 2 unlike level 1, this car can steer itself instead of only using the brakes. And level 3, manages all the safety controls but is mostly controlled by the human. Level 4 is like level 3 but can control the car but not all the controls. Lastly, level 5 can use all the controls.
