VEX AI Competition

VEX AI, VEX GPS, and VEX LINK, and the resulting Sensor Fusion create an opportunity for students to take their autonomous robots a level up! The VEX AI Competition pushes the boundaries of robotics competitions. The game is separate from the VRC and VEX U competitions.

Here's How it Works

  • Two Robots per Team – Each team brings two robots that they design and build to work as a team.
  • Parts – Teams can 3D print and machine parts. Teams can use custom electronics, and there are no motor quantity limits.
  • Grade-level – This game will be open to High School students and College students alike.
  • Registration – Season registration is $200 for the first team and $150 for each additional team within the same organization.
  • Hardware – The hardware kit needed to run VEX AI, VEX GPS, VEX LINK, and Sensor Fusion Map is available for purchase from VEX, SKU 276-8983 (coming soon).

How to register

The VEX AI Competition Season will open for registration for high school and university level students in Fall 2023.
