FTC Bowled-Over and VEX Gateway Challenge Virtual Gameboards

No comments

The new FTC Bowled Over Virtual Gameboard has been edited allowing the

placement of robots in four different start positions. The ROBOTC development team has also fixed the physics problem found in the first build.  The VEX Gateway challenge

now has four start positions and allows teams to test their programs with the gate up or the gate down. Download a copy of the Robot Virtual World at www.robotc.net/rvw to learn how Robot Virtual Worlds work click here: http://www.robotc.net/rvw/rvw-getting-started.pdf

Check it out.  It is cool.  Robots are configured with encoders, sonar, touch, light, and compass sensors.  You can build robot behaviors in the virtual world and test them.  The behaviors will need to be tweaked when you actually transfer them to the robot but you will have a large

advantage by being able to begin you robot path planning.  The ROBOTC team is taking team suggestions on robot configuration at the ROBOTC Forum www.robotc.net/forum
