Return Values for Sensors

I’m in my second year with Vex and I’m trying to set up sensors for my autonomous program (I use easyC). If I set up sensors such as the ultrasonic sensor, potentiometer, or shaft encoder, it will return a value. Can anyone tell me what that value means (degrees, inches, etc.) for each sensor? Your help is very much appreciated.

Welcome to the forums!

Different sensors return different values that mean different things.

You can read about how each of the EDR sensors function and what each of their outputs means on the VEX wiki here -

Let me know if you have any questions,


Will do! Thanks for all your help.
