BEST Robotics

BEST Robotics is an annual middle-school and high-school competition that engages students in the study of engineering, science, and technology as they create remotely operated machines. Students build a robot from scratch and program the VEX ARM Cortex Microcontroller for the BEST Robotics mission. Applying Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink lets your team efficiently design and build a functioning robot for the competition.
