Abstract

The VEX Robotics Team is a competition-based group on the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott Campus. The team designs and constructs robots using standard VEX parts, and competes in university-level VEX Robotics competitions. This year, the organization had two teams: Blue Team and Gold Team. Each team builds two robots and represents Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University at competitions. The VEX game for the 2015-2016 season is named “Nothing But Net.” In the game, each robot alliance scores as many 4-inch foam balls as possible into its respective net, which lies at the opposite corner of the 12’ by 12’ field. Then, during the last 30 seconds of the 2-minute match, one robot from each alliance elevates its partner robot off the ground either 4 inches for a low elevation, or 12 inches for a high elevation. The teams began the year with brainstorming ideas for robot designs, conducting research, and constructing prototypes. Then, the teams constructed their final designs, programmed their robots using the RobotC programming language, and conducted final testing in preparation for competition. The VEX Robotics Team successfully hosted its first VEX-U competition at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott Campus in November of 2015, and is planning on hosting future competitions. Additionally, the team competed at the Southwest VEX-U Tournament on March 5th, 2016 at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.
