Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Got the answer from Vex directly. Apparently the brain was not fully tested before shipping. I contacted their Customer Support and they are forwarding prepaid shipping labels to send it back.

The only thing missing from the VEX kits is the software - consider either RobotC (text based) or EasyC (graphical). If you are not sure if a kit contains all the parts you need, we'd be happy to clarify.

The kids are in grades 9-12 and I just got the word I have $2,500 to get things rolling. I've done some research since your initial response and Vex definitely seems the way to go.

There are many possible options, but it seems like a kit which can be reconfigured is best. Consider VEX: http://www.robotshop.com/en/vex-construction-robot-kit.html Ex: http://www.robotshop.com/en/vex-classroom-programming-kit-no-software.html This can be reused year after ...

... What do you think? Seems about right - it just becomes a gear train. Also, how would I go about calculating the required torque (kg.cm) and if the VEX servo would be up to the job? I did physics back and A Level but it's been a while since I've actually used it in a practical situation. Calculate ...

Thanks for the reply. That bevel gearbox seems like a very good and compact solution. I had noticed that the VEX servo only rotates 100° which wouldn't be enough to rotate 90° and tilt 90°. (To rotate the screen the servos would rotate 90° in the opposite direction and to tilt ...

The Cortex is a nice controller in that it uses standard 0.1" spaced pinout. The DFRobot sensor has a small white JST connector but includes an adapter cable so you can in fact plug it into 0.1" spaced headers. Double-check the pin assignment (V GND and Signal) before connecting. If they d...
