VEX Robotics is a worldwide competition for middle and high school students who design and build a robot to compete in a game-based engineering challenge. More than 10,000 teams from 32 countries participate in over 750 tournaments. Tournaments are held throughout the school year at the regional, state, and national levels, culminating in the VEX Robotics World Championship in April. The challenges test both the tele-operated and autonomous behavior of the robots on the game field. The robots are powered by a VEX ARM Cortex Microcontroller. By applying Model-Based Design, students can efficiently design and build a functioning robot using MATLAB and Simulink.
