IEEE Hosts VEX Robotics Competition to Prepare for 2014 World Championship

In order to boost their performance at this year's VEX Robotics World Championship, the Old Westbury chapter of IEEE hosted the neighboring robotics team from Vaughn College in Queens to compete one-on-one on a robotics challenge during spring break. The competion was designed to be similar to the anticipated course at the upcoming championship. Rather than strictly competing against one another, both teams used this opportunity to foster a mutually collaborative spirit and learn a little about their opponent's robots, all while gaining knowledge and insight into how to apply new applications and improvements to their machines. 

This year's VEX World Championship will be a game of "Toss Up," in which teams will pit their robots against each other in a contest of dexterity and sportsmanship. Using two robots, each team has the objective of placing, or scoring bucky and beach balls into certain areas of a playing field. They will also tackle the task of building and programming a robot to lift itself 40 inches above the ground while holding a beach ball. 

The 2014 VEX Robotics World Championship will take place April 23-26 in Anaheim, California. The NYIT and Vaughn College robotics teams plan to scrimmage one more time before travelling to the competition.

NYIT and Vaughn teams, from left to right:
