This course is intended for absolute beginners as far as the VEX EDR hardware and the VEXcode software is concerned. We'll look at the basic functions of all the parts of a VEX EDR V5 Kit and how to use them, how to install the VEXcode software, configure a robot, update the firmware and write a drive program using both the VEXcode V5 Blocks and VEXcode V5 Text software in order to allow you to make an informed decision on the software that suit your needs. Using both software suites, we'll set up the Vision Sensor, save a color signature and use the vision sensor data in programs.
