Programming the VEX IQ Brain




The VEX IQ brain lets you print messages and control the VEX IQ sensors and motors. In this tutorial, you'll learn about the robotic brain and program it to display messages.

Hardware required

  • VEX IQ Brain

Program

Let's create a program that prints the message "HELLO" onto the VEX IQ brain.

Open the Modkit for VEX editor. Drag and drop code blocks to match the image below. The ‘when START’ block runs once each time your program runs.

Download your program, and run it on the physical VEX IQ brain.

Next, let's modify the program to print "HELLO" every second. Drag and drop the code blocks to match the image below. The 'forever' block repeatedly runs the code inside, allowing your program to change and respond as it runs.

Download your program, and run it on the physical VEX IQ brain.

In this tutorial, you learned about the VEX IQ brain and printed messages using the 'when START' and 'forever' blocks. There is so much more that you can do! Check out our other Getting Started guides!
