V5 - Intelligent Simplicity

A modern education solution at your fingertips

Designed specifically for education and competition, and leveraging years of customer feedback, we’ve created a faster, smarter, and more powerful control system that is perfect for any robotics environment.

More details about the V5 Control System will be available in 2018.

Just a quick question. What is this?

A tease…

New control system, it’s on the LS.

Is that the only new product “revealed”?

Arguably.

by new control system, you mean a microprocessor?

Microcontroller, controller, battery
Edit: if not more

New microprocessor, sensors, batteries, motors, and controllers.

@The Electrobotz its a new motor, cortex, vexnet and controller

Oh so we are probably going to have to buy lots of new parts right

They said it wouldn’t be released until next year and will not be legal for the 2017-2018 game.

They said motors will last longer and have IEMs built in. New sensors will still work with old cortexes, but I’m not sure if that means old cortexes will be legal. The new cortex will have a touchscreen (I think; they only hinted to a touchscreen)

WILL THE MOTORS HAVE STATIC ISSUES? DID YOU FIX IT, PLEASE DEAR GOD TELL ME YOU FIXED IT

@9065_parker I hope so!

@tessmusic What did they say that hinted at a touchscreen?

@DaleNash01 I don’t remember. I may be totally wrong honestly. I wish they had given us more details.

Will there be an info booth at worlds tomorrow about the new system?

Rechargable batteries. Woo
