Motion Accessories

The Motion Subsystem comprises all the components in the VEX Robotics Design System which make a robot move. These components are critical to every robot. The Motion Subsystem is tightly integrated with the components of the Structure Subsystem in almost all robot designs. In the VEX Robotics Design System the motion components are all easily integrated together. This makes it simple to create very complex systems using the basic motion building blocks.
