EasyC Programming
  • Getting started Teleop -this link is for instructions on how to create a program to control your robot using the VEX Cortex Joystick (this is referred to as Teleop control) using EasyC v4 for Cortex.
  • Programming an arm in Teleop-this link is for instructions on how to create a program to control an arm motor using EasyC v4 for Cortex
  • Build and download -this link is for instructions on how to build and download a program to the VEX cortex controller using EasyC v4 for Cortex.
  • Getting started Autonomous - this link is for instructions on how to create a program to make your robot drive forward, turn right, then drive forward again and then stop when it is turned on (this is referred to as an autonomous program) using EasyC v4 for Cortex
  • Programming Smart Tasks - this link provides a step by step instructions on how to program a Gateway protoBOT to score a game piece in the low goal using Smart Tasks
  • Programming With Arguments - this link provides a step by step instructions on how to create user functions with arguments.
  • Adam's programming notes - notes taken from a workshop by Adam Martin of intelitek Please click on Adam Programming.pdf below
  • James Pearmen's Example of a Simple PID in EasyC. A proportional/integral/differential (PID) control loop is an incredibly powerful control feedback code that allows your robot to move to a set position determined by a sensor and maintain that position.
