VEX IQ Super Kit Project I

VexIQClawbotFrom: Vex Robotics

This is the fully functional, sensored-up for the younger crowd. Out of the box it comes with complete RC control via the Vex IQ Microcontroller/Brain and wireless controller. The fully appointed kit build yields the Vex IQ version of the Clawbot but is laden with sensors right out of the box. Sensors include: Bumper Switches, Gyro Sensor, Touch LED, Color Sensor and Distance Sensor. The kit moves using VexIQ Smart Motors which are just right for the younger set.

Project Plan:

Test the built-in programming and build a basic task program using the fully accessorized Vex IQ Clawbot.


Fully functional base platform complete and operational in both RC and programmable modes.

Next Steps:

Test sensor-using sample program.

I will do my utmost to make progress on this project by next issue and report on what’s going on with it… the successes and failures. I sometimes learn more from a failure than from a success so let’s see how much of each we find. If something strikes you about this project… please email me at with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
