Abstract

The VEX Robotics Club is a competition-based group of students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott Campus. The team designs and constructs robots using standard VEX parts and competes in university-level VEX Robotics competitions. The club is divided into three competition teams: Blue, White, and Gold teams. Each team builds one robot and represents Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University at VEX Competitions. The VEX game for the 2017-2018 season is called “In the Zone.” In the game, two competing robots score as many yellow plastic cones on red and blue stationary or mobile bases and can also move the mobile bases into scoring zones on two corners of the competition field during the two-minute matches. The robots must operate autonomously for the first 45 seconds of each match, then drivers can take over control of the robots. The teams began the season by researching different scoring ideas, building prototypes, and conducting research to determine the best designs. Then the teams built their robots and programmed them using the RobotC language, then competing in the first competition of the season in early November on campus and the second competition in early Marchon campus. The club is also responsible for hosting these two competitions, the second of which invites over seventy teams to compete in high school and university level divisions.
