We are thrilled to announce the availability of our brand new virtual environment, the VEX Robotics Competition Turning Point! As in years past, this world is made available at the same time as its real world counterpart when unveiled at VEX Worlds!

Robot Virtual Worlds (RVW) is a high-end virtual environment that enables students to learn programming concepts with or without a physical robot. RVW uses a virtual VEX EDR or VEX IQ robot with motors and sensors in 3D environments which can be programmed using the same language as physical robots. The RVW environment is perfect for classroom, homework, and competition!

The competition for this year is extremely exciting! With VRC Turning Point, matches are played on a field set up as seen above.

The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring Caps,

Scoring Flags,

and by Alliance Parking or Center Parking Robots on the Platforms.

A bonus is awarded to the Alliance that has the most points at the end of the Autonomous Period.

Using Robot Virtual Worlds will allow you to …

  • Practice programming in the 2018-2019 game right away
  • Compete with your classmates, or online through CS2N (starting in the Fall)
  • Form strategies using the virtual field
  • Develop and test code on a simulated robot before running code on a real robot!

Don’t wait until the season begins, start practicing today! Click the following links for all the information on the game – http://robotvirtualworlds.com/turningpoint
