Robot Virtual Worlds, developed by Robomatter, is a high-end simulation environment that enables students to learn programming when a robot isn’t available. Robot Virtual Worlds simulates VEX EDR and VEX IQ robots in 3D environments which can be programmed using the same language as physical robots, ROBOTC.
The Robot Virtual Worlds environment is perfect for home, classroom, and competition environments! The Robot Virtual World software solves two problems and introduces several other exciting opportunities for education: In a classroom environment, Robot Virtual Worlds can allow every student to test their programming concepts without needing a robot readily available. When using ROBOTC, students can toggle between Physical and Virtual robots to quickly debug and test their code in a virtual environment and then deploy to a real robot.
Robot Virtual Worlds allows students to continue their robotics experience outside of the classroom by leveraging virtual technology to simulate a robot anywhere! Teachers can leverage this to assign authentic homework and help students who may miss a lesson. Virtual Worlds robots simulate VEX EDR and VEX IQ motors and sensors.
