VEX IQ Floorbot

I created a little floorbot using IQ and programmed in VEXcode IQ Blocks. Works on the same principle as 123 by “programming” steps using the forward, backwards, left and right buttons. It has a 100 step memory.
Great to keep my 4 year old occupied for a bit.

This looks terrific! Care to share your code and more pics of the robot? I’ve been wanting to sit down and create a minimal build for some upcoming training. This design looks very clean.

Sure, I will post the code from my laptop later.
Here is a video that shows the operation. It moves in 200mm blocks but that is obviously customisable in the VEXcode program.
The build uses plastic shafts but need to replace these with metal as there is too much bounce in the plastic ones to be ideal.

By the way, if you want a quick clean build for programming, the Speed Build on the IQ Robot Builds download page is good:

Nice, and I like the use of the bare hub to allow the robot to slide on the floor vs using the Omni wheels.

Super cool! However, wouldn’t you need an H or X drive setup to truly achieve the left/right movement? If you have omni-wheels, it is super easy to do.

Thanks!
No, it turns 90 degrees in the style of VEX 123 etc.
