VEXos is a robotics operating system that harnesses the flexibility and power of VEX hardware for the rigors of competition and the diverse needs of education. This operating system, written completely by VEX Robotics, uses real-time processing for repeatable operation at the fastest possible speeds.
All of the VEX IQ Smart Devices (Robot Brain, Controller, Smart Motor, and sensors) contain their own internal processors and run special software. This software is what allows for advanced programming features. The best way to ensure that your VEX IQ system is functioning properly is to keep the Robot's software up to date.
Note: All firmware updates for VEX IQ 2nd Generation are performed in VEXcode, while the "VEXos Utility" program (download below) is a standalone program used to update firmware for 1st Generation Electronics.
