Changing Velocity

Now that the build is finished, explore and see what it can do. Then answer these questions in your engineering notebook.

  • Why does the Autopilot have four wheels instead of only two? Why is having four wheels better?

  • VEX IQ calls their motors Smart Motors. Why do you think they call them smart? What might VEX IQ Smart Motors do that would make them seem smart?

  • Should the Autopilot always drive as fast as it can? Why or why not? Give at least one example of when it should drive its fastest and at least one example of when it should drive more slowly.
