How do I get two or more Vex V5 Brains to handshake?

Documentation for Vex Link can be found Here

Instructions on how to make a wireless connection are supper clear and easy to follow

To make a wired connection:

  • You must modify the smart cable by cutting the power wire (for me it was the yellow, most likely yours will be the same).

  • I didn’t cut the ground and it hasn’t given me problems so far

  • Also remember there is a forth parameter that defines if the connection is wired or wireless this defaults to false which means the connection is wireless. For a wired connection you must specify true.

Example for wired connection:

vex::serial_link LinkB(PORT20, “vex_robotics_team_1234_B”, linkType::manager, true);
