VEX AI Competition
VEX has spent the past two years developing the advancement that led to the new VEX AI Competition. The most critical was VEX GPS (Game Positioning System), followed by VEX AI game and field object detection, then finally VEX LINK robot-to-robot communications over VEXnet radios. Once we had all this software working on off-the-shelf processors and cameras, we realized that it would take another year to build custom VEX hardware. We did not want to wait a year for teams to start using this amazing technology, so we decided to release the software to teams, running on the same off-the-shelf hardware we were using. We are currently developing the formal VEX hardware for the 2021-2022 season.
Using off-the-shelf hardware for 2020-21. Nvidia Nano processor with Wi-FI, Intel RealSense Depth Camera, FLIR monochrome USB Camera, and VEX Software.
