Abstract

VEX U is a competition hosted by the REC Foundation for university students to get engaged in hands-on engineering. Each team produces two robots using the VEX provided parts to compete in the VEX U competition. The competition changes every year with the only constants being the size of the field, the tools and parts teams are able to use, and the size constraints of the robots. The teams compete in regional competitions in order to qualify for the World Championship Competition, which is the highest competition a team can compete in for VEX U. The VEX U teams at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University are divided into two teams, ERAU Blue and ERAU Gold. Each of these teams are divided into a programming and build teams, in which students learn to communicate and cooperate between software and hardware and the importance of doing so. The leadership structure of the club includes the president, vice president/treasure, the gold and blue team leads, the programming leads, and the build team leads. Both teams compete at the competitions in order to gain engineering experience, networking opportunities, and the opportunity to compete in a rigorous competition.

  • POSTER PRESENTATION AND DEMONSTRATION originally planned; POSTER PRESENTATION given online format of event.
  • EAGLE PRIZE AWARD
