SDK, Software Development Kit for developing your NAO
robot.
This comprehensive, accessible Software Development Kit
from Aldebaran Robotics puts user-friendly, documented
software at your disposal. The kit allows you, whatever
your skill level, to create behaviours for your NAO robot. It
also lets you integrate the modules you develop into your
robot and use them to create more elaborate behaviours.
The Software Development Kit also contains compiling
and debugging tools. This multi-platform development
kit is compatible with many commonly used languages
and robotics platforms, including Java, JavaScript, C++,
Python, MATLAB, Urbi and .Net.
Choregraphe is the programming software that lets
you simply create and edit your NAOs movements
and interactive behaviours. Its intuitive graphical
interface, library of standard behaviours, and advanced
programming functions meet the needs of both
beginners and experts. You can create behaviours simply
by dragging and dropping actions from the library or
creating customized boxes and saving them to custom
libraries. The boxes of pre-programmed behaviours are
GCUKN[EQPƁIWTCDNGDWV[QWECPCNUQETGCVG[QWTQYPD[
using the Curve Editor to edit movements or by writing
them in Python scripts. Choregraphe accepts the Urbi and
Python languages and can therefore directly call the C++
modules developed separately. It is supplied with many
detailed examples that simplify the learning process.
Monitor allows you to see and perceive like NAO. It
allows you to easily access accurate data from your NAOs
sensors. You can then use the Memory module to access
and analyze, in a user-friendly way, all the data provided
by NAOs sensors. Monitor also lets you test the vision
algorithms on recorded extracts.

STARTER KITS
VEX IQ Starter Kits are available in 3 versions – Starter Kit with Controller, Starter Kit with Sensors and Super Kit.
The Super Kit is essential for use in the VEX IQ Challenge as students will need both sensors and the Joystick. The Starter Kit with Sensors
is ideal for classroom and curriculum use and can be upgraded to a Super Kit at a later date for just £54 if required. The Starter Kit with
Controller is best for home and hobby use.
All starter kits contain 4 motors and enough pieces and instructions to build the BaseBot and the Clawbot with plenty of parts left over to
expand the robots. These two robots are an excellent introduction to the world of VEX IQ. All the starter kits also contain parts to build the
Armbot, Ike and V-Rex (one model at a time, instructions can be downloaded from www.rapidonline.com/vexiq or any other creations your
students can imagine.
Unlike some other robotics kits, these are genuinely starter kits, you don’t need to buy anything else to unlock the full potential of VEX IQ.
All batteries and chargers are included and the Modkit programming software is completely free! However, you are not limited by the contents
of the kits – the robot Brain has 12 smart ports which means it can control 12 motors or sensors in any combination so your creations can be
as simple or complex as you like.

VEX IQ – 4 ways to program!
One of the advantages that VEX IQ has over other robotics platforms is the number of ways in which it can be programmed. The platform is ideal
for use at KS2 and KS3 and is easily accessible through a range of graphical programming interfaces. For more advanced KS3 users as well as
KS4 and KS5, the text-based ROBOTC and Python interfaces allow you to push the complexity of your designs to the next level.
MODKIT FOR VEX
Modkit is a drag and drop programming language that makes it easy to program your VEX IQ projects.
The “event based” block programming tools will be familiar to anyone who has used Scratch –
mechanisms, drive-trains and sensors can broadcast and respond to events independently making it easy
to program complex actions and reactions.
Modkit is completely free and runs in a browser window – visit www.modkit.com/VEX to get started and
view the tutorials.
ROBOTC 4.0
ROBOTC 4.0 is the most complete programming language available for use with VEX IQ and
VEX Cortex robots. There are three ways to program – drag and drop graphical for beginners,
Natural Language (simplified text based) for intermediate users or full text based programming for
advanced users. The extensive library of sample programs help to get you up to speed quickly and the
comprehensive help file show the syntax of each command and an example of how it can be used.
As well as being able to program physical VEX IQ and VEX Cortex robots, ROBOTC can also be
used to program on screen robots using Robot Virtual Worlds.
To find out more about ROBOTC and Robot Virtual Worlds, see page 110
FLOWOL 4
Flowol 4 will be familiar to many schools who have used it to
program the on-screen “mimics”, PICAXE hardware and more.
The good news is that Flowol 4 is also compatible with VEX IQ
and VEX Cortex robots too!
Flowol 4 is a flowchart based language the offers one of the
simplest solutions for getting started with programming.
Students can easily follow the logic of the program by simply
following the lines and decisions within the flowchart.
To find out more about Flowol 4, see page 112
ROBOTMESH
RobotMesh is a free, online programming language which can
be used with both VEX IQ and VEX Cortex. Users can create
programs using Python or the graphical Blockly interface.
When using Blockly, you have the option to see the equivalent
Python being generated as well.
To help you get up and running, there are a range of sample
programs for VEX IQ and VEX Cortex platforms using both
the Python and Blockly interfaces.

MAKE YOUR OWN VEX IQ PARTS!
Create VEX IQ compatible parts using 3D printing technology
Engineers and designers at VEX Robotics often use 3D printing technology to prototype,
test, refine, and iterate their products before they are released. 3D printing allows computer
models to be quickly turned into real world prototypes.
Whilst 3D printing is also a fantastic technology to use in the classroom, projects can sometimes lack purpose which is
why we have released the VEX IQ part specification and 3D models as FREE resources.
The entire VEX IQ product range can now be downloaded in STEP format from www.rapidonline.com/VEXIQ.
You can then load these directly into your CAD package and print your own or modify them to make new
custom parts.
Design, make, test and evaluate parts
Teachers can set challenges for their students to create new and exciting VEX IQ pieces whilst students will need
to ensure that their parts are accurately designed so that they are compatible with original VEX IQ motors, gears,
sensors and structural parts.
• Gives students a focus for designing 3D printed parts
• Demonstrates the need for accurate CAD models to ensure compatibility with existing parts
• Requires students to think about how products like VEX IQ are designed, for example using ribs for strength whilst
reducing the amount of material used
• Evaluate how different materials (e.g. PLA and ABS) perform

FOUR WAYS TO PROGRAM
VEX EDR offers 4 ways to program your robot which means you can choose the language
that you and your students are most comfortable with, allowing you to get the most out of
your VEX experience.
ROBOTC 4.0
ROBOTC 4.0 is the most
complete programming
language available for use
with VEX EDR Cortex
robots. There are three ways
to program – drag and drop
graphical for beginners,
Natural Language (simplified
text based) for intermediate
users or full text based
programming for advanced users. The extensive library of sample
programs help to get you up to speed quickly and the comprehensive
help file shows the syntax of each command and an example of how
it can be used.
-key’
etition
nificant
ot and
have
e complex
l for
Another unique feature of ROBOTC 4.0 is how it can be used to
program on screen robots using the Robot Virtual Worlds software.
The built in challenges allow teachers to assess their students
progress while learning program structures, sensors and robot
control.
And if all that wasn’t enough, ROBOTC 4.0 can also be used to
program VEX IQ robots so younger students can learn to code on
the same software that they will use when they progress to VEX
EDR.
ROBOTC 4.0 is legal for use in both the VEX Robotics Competition
and VEX IQ Challenge

Booster Kit
(additional metal
and hardware)
Flowol 4 will be familiar
to many schools who have
used it to program the onscreen “mimics”, PICAXE
hardware and more. The
good news is that Flowol
4 is also compatible with
VEX EDR Cortex robots
too!
Flowol 4 is a flowchart
based language that offers one of the simplest solutions for getting
started with programming - students can easily follow the logic of
the program by simply following the lines and decisions within the
flowchart.
Despite its simplicity, Flowol teaches many key programming
elements:
• Sequences of instructions
• Branching using decisions
• Loops (infinite or based on a condition/count)
• Variables and simple variable manipulation
• Sub-procedures (parameters optional)
• Multiple parallel threads
Flowol 4 is compatible with both VEX EDR Cortex and VEX IQ
robots and is also legal for use in the VEX Robotics Competition
and VEX IQ Challenge.
To find out more about Flowol 4, see page 112

rather than just spin forward
or backward. However, unlike
standard motors, they have
a limited range of travel and
can’t continually rotate.

These larger 6.35mm (¼in) shafts are tougher,
stronger, and ready for even the most stressful robotic
applications. The thicker shafts are more resistant to both
twisting and bending fatigue, meaning that you should
have no fear of designing high-torque gearboxes or highimpact drivetrains. The 2, 3 and 4in shafts
(70-6379, 70-6380 and 70-6382) are actually designed
about 1mm shorter than their respective 2, 3, and 4 inch
8-32 Standoffs. This means that, if you use standoffs to
hold together two pieces of metal, the high strength shaft
can rest on the high strength bearings attached to those
two pieces without any cutting required.

Pillow Block Bearings
are similar to the
‘pillow-blocks’ used
in industry. They
mount on a piece of
structure and support
a shaft which is offset
either above, below or
to the side of the structure.
Lock Bars allow any VEX component to be ‘locked’
to a shaft so that it will spin with the shaft.
• Pack contains:
• 6x Pillow Bearing Blocks
• 4x Lock bars
Flat Bearing Blocks
These Flat Bearing
Blocks mount directly
on to a VEX structure
and will support a
shaft which runs
perpendicular and directly through the structure.
• Low friction allows shafts to turn smoothly
• Mount with screws and nuts or pop rivets
• Supplied in packs of 10

With the Quadrature Encoder’s two output channels you
can measure both the position and direction of rotation
of a VEX shaft. This will allow you to calculate the speed
of the shaftas well as the distance it has travelled;
these are very useful measurements for autonomous
programming.
• Measure Angular Travel.
• Determine Rotational Direction.
• Calculate Shaft Speed.
• Calculate Distance Travelled.
• Increase Navigational Control.
• Improve Autonomous Functionality.
Analog Accelerometer
The VEX
Accelerometer
measures
accelerations on three
axis simultaneously.
By measuring the
acceleration of
the robot, one can
calculate the velocity
of the robot and
more importantly, the
distance the robot has travelled. Accelerometers are also

microphone
as a sound
detector, the car
reverses and
turns when it
‘hears’ a sharp
sound such as a handclap or the sound generated by
hitting an obstacle
The Ladybug kit enables you to build a robot that detects
obstacles using infrared emitting diodes as its ‘eyes’.
• When an object is detected, Ladybug automatically
makes a left turn, before moving forward once again
• Different sets of movements can be performed,
providing endless fun and experimentation

Needle Bearings
Modelcraft’s range of needle
bearings feature a needle
cage that provides a roller
bearing with minimal radial
construction space combined
with great strength. Needle
bearings are used when
the shaft and casing bore
are designed as slide ways.
Preferred application in model construction is to seat the
ring gear on the engine crank shaft.

Modelcraft’s Linear Ball
Bearings are ball guidance
systems for axial movement
(displacement paths) on
shafts. Bearing race and
bearings are a unit ready for
installation - the bearings have to be pressed into a
casing bore. Two bearings are required to hold the shaft
precisely.
• Linear ball bearings can be lubricated for speeds of
up to 2 m/s
• Used for axial movement, not rotating shafts
