ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.x (VEX EDR & VEX IQ)

ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.x by Robomatter Inc. allows users to program their VEX IQ robots using a brand new graphical drag-and-drop programming interface, or the popular industry standard C-based ROBOTC programming language – all in the same software!

For beginning users, the new ROBOTC Graphical drag-and-drop interface allows users to get up and running quickly by using commands such as “Forward”, “Turn Right”, “Line Track” and “Arcade Control”. Users can develop custom robot configurations and program the easy-to-use Graphical Interface with any robot configuration!

ROBOTC also includes the fully featured text-based C-Programming software. This advanced programming option includes many useful tools that help programmers to get up and running as quickly as possible.

In both Graphical and text-based ROBOTC, users can learn key skills that easily transition to real world programming by learning industry standard C-Programming Language that is used by professional engineers and computer scientists every day.

ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.x works with the entire line of VEX Robotics kits, making it a natural pathway to success for VEX students as they grow into more advanced projects - or even careers. ROBOTC 4.X includes over 100 new commands specifically for VEX IQ and over 200 sample programs to learn how to get your robot moving and sensing!

ROBOTC also allows you to prototype your code in simulation environments using Robot Virtual worlds. A ROBOTC for VEX Robot Virtual Worlds license is required.

If you have any questions about ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.X, check out the new VEX IQ forum area at the Forums. Users can also take a look at the Introduction to Programming VEX IQ curriculum by Robomatter.

Robomatter has also partnered with the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy to offer a free webinar series based around their new VEX IQ - no programming experience needed! To learn more and how to access the free webinars, visit for more information.


Modkit for VEX

Modkit for VEXModkit for VEX is a graphical programming environment developed specifically for VEX IQ. Based on research from the Scratch project at the MIT Media Lab, Modkit for VEX is built around snap-together blocks which make programming truly accessible and fun for all ages and skill levels.

Designed to simplify mechanism control into a format intuitive for students, Modkit for VEX features the ability to virtually configure your robot inside the software. When you specify what sensors are attached and parameters like drive base dimensions or wheel types, Modkit for VEX will create custom blocks for your robot (like "Turn 90° Left") and take care of the complex calculations (like gyro input) behind the scenes.
