EasyC v5 for Cortex and VEX IQ provides the best way to harness the full power of VEX robotics systems. With one license for both the Cortex and VEX IQ microcontroller, easyC provides the perfect programming solution for classrooms and competitive teams.
EasyC enables you to produce effective programs in a short period of time. Designed with the student and teacher in mind, easyC’s simple-to-use graphical interface does all of the syntax and spacing, allowing you to focus on program flow and design. Each function block links to detailed help on how to use that particular function.
Experienced programmers can use the text editor to enter true C code. Tutorials and sample projects enable users of any level to program quickly and effective.
Why use easyC?
Features VEX IQ Programming:
Features VEX Cortex Programming:
VEX Integrated Motor Encoders Support
Retrieve number of encoder ticks from any of up to eight encoders, the speed of the motor that the IME is attached to, or preset the values of any of the encoders. Use IME PID function block to control the position through the use of a PID controller.
“Robot Driving” Functions
Define your robot’s drivetrain, then issue simple commands such as “Drive”, “Turn”, “Stop” or “Drive for Time”. Combined with VEX Integrated Motor Encoders, you can command your robot to drive for a specific number of wheel rotations, or a specific degree of wheel rotation.
“Smart Motor” Functions
Use the Time Control block to command a VEX motor to drive for a number of milliseconds,and then stop – all in one, easy to read and control block.
“Wait until” blocks
The “wait until” blocks act like Wait statements, but instead of waiting for a specific number of milliseconds to elapse, the block will wait for any of the VEX sensors to read a specific state.
