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.

Pneumatics
Pneumatic cylinders use compressed air, rather than motors to produce motion that rests in one of 2 states: fully extended or fully retracted. The cylinder in Pneumatics Kit 1 is single-acting -- it uses air to extend the cylinder rod, but uses a spring to return to its contracted state. As a result, the cylinder may expand and contract at different speeds. In contrast, the cylinders in Pneumatics Kit 2 are double-acting and use compressed air to both extend and retract.
