Before you can compete in the Coding Crunch Challenge, you first need to learn about path planning and coding individual motors so that you can prepare for and code your robot for an autonomous challenge using VEXcode EXP.
Path planning enables you to code your robot to solve a challenge or accomplish a task more effectively and efficiently.
Coding Individual Motors
In order to code a robot's claw to open and close, or code a robot's arm to raise and lower, you need to learn how to use the [Spin for] block in VEXcode EXP.
Preparing for Autonomous Challenges
In an autonomous challenge, your robot's movements are entirely controlled by your code, there is no driver control allowed. This means that things like project planning, testing and debugging, and careful set up of the Field and robot are particularly important.
Check Your Understanding
Before moving on to the Practice section, ensure that you understand the concepts covered on this page by answering the questions in the document below in your engineering notebook.
