Examples on how to use the VEX V5 Touchscreen Display

VRC and VEX-U teams,

Simulink now supports creating user interfaces for the VEX V5 touchscreen. We hope you will find this feature useful! Thanks to all the teams that shared their display use cases with us so we could come up with a programming solution for this :slight_smile:


Although some of the more advanced teams requested this functionality, it should be very easy to use by any team. Here is an extra quick summary of how it works:

  1. Create a user interface in Simulink using dashboard blocks
  2. Connect your buttons and displays to parameters and signals
  3. Promote to a Simulink Panel and program the V5 Brain

Here are resources on how to get started with this:

Hope you find it useful! Please comment with questions and more uses for the VEX V5 display so teams can get the most value out of this.

This is so cool, so many kids at the organization I work could benefit from this. They can have a better display for their sensors, motors rotation, and so on than what they actually β€œcan do.”

Thanks a lot for providing such a cool post.


@Cristia95 Thanks! Please feel free to share any cool uses that the students come up with on this thread :slight_smile:
