Activate VEX LINK Communications

Communicate from Robot-to-Robot

Send messages and data between bots

Coordinate robot actions

Overview

The ability of robots to communicate together is critical to autonomous robot operations. Coordinated efforts between robots require knowledge of each other's location, allowing tasks to be divided between robots. Changes in strategy need to be communicated as well.

How VEX LINK Communications Works

The VEX LINK communication system uses a second VEX V5 VEXnet radio connected to each V5 Robot Brain to establish a robot-to-robot link. Alphanumeric strings can be sent between robots using a “message_link” protocol, similar to text messaging. Large blocks of data can also be sent using a “serial_link” protocol, similar to USB data.

How it Applies

VEX LINK is critical to allowing the robot to share the results of their AI object detection and GPS locations. VEX LINK is critical to allowing the robot to share the results of their AI object detection and GPS locations. This enables both robots to work with each other's information, essentially giving them two points of view.
