[FONT=“Times New Roman”]Do we need the vexnet upgrade for this year’s competition? Is there a seperate competition template for RobotC with the VexNet? Is there a page with all of this information? Something that I heard from rumors is that wifi stuff can affect the VexNet connection, though that’s just some random guy that said it. Is it true?
A computer always has to be connected to the transmitter VEXnet pair to communicate to the VEXnet Robot Link. So the bottleneck will always be a USB to Serial Converter so 115200 Baud would be my best guess.
Hopefully one day VEX will open up the VEXnet USB pair so a computer can ping the robot independent of the transmitter.
In the distant future, I see IFI opening up inter-communication between robots over VEXnet! Swarms of VEXnet robots talking to each other at Championship !
