VRT Cleanup Challenge Walkthrough

In my final video in my series on the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, I will be giving a brief walkthrough on how I solved the Cleanup challenge in 5.6 seconds! The Virtual Robotics Toolkit (VRT) is a robotics simulation software made by Cogmation robotics, and allows you to prototype an EV3/NXT creation without the need for …

Virtual vs. Physical Robots Part 2 – Mechanisms

This week, I will be comparing how mechanisms and complex gear trains work on robots in the Virtual Robotics Toolkit to mechanisms on a physical EV3 robot. The Virtual Robotics Toolkit (VRT) is a robotics simulation software made by Cogmation robotics, and allows you to prototype an EV3/NXT creation without the need for a physical …

Virtual vs. Physical Robots Part 1 – Programming

This week, I will compare the process of programming a virtual robot in the Virtual Robotics Toolkit to the process of programming a physical EV3 robot. I will also explain the differences between programming physical and virtual robots. (Spoiler alert: they’re very similar). The Virtual Robotics Toolkit (VRT) is a robotics simulation software made by …
