The VEX U Robotics Competition is an interdisciplinary robotics-based international challenge run by VEX Robotics Inc and the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation (RECF). The highest tier of the VEX Competitions, it requires students to design, build and program multiple robots for a challenge that involves precise manipulation of objects, autonomous motion and navigation, assistance and feedback for human drivers, and interaction with other robots. Robots must perform consistently and teams must be prepared to adapt rapidly to any potential failure at competition time, as matches are only 2 minutes long! The competition culminates in April when the best teams from countries around the world come together to compete at the VEX Robotics World Championships!
