Natural Language 2.0

ROBOTC’s VEX IQ Natural Language 2.0 is designed to make programming simpler and serve as a bridge that a beginning programmer can travel on to take them to full C programming. The video links below come from the seminar series.

Natural language use pseudocode like commands enabling students to quickly get their robots moving. For example, kids will be able to write programs like:

Programming Softwares


ROBOTC

ROBOTC  is a powerful C-based programming language with a Windows environment for writing and debugging programs, and the only programming language at this level that offers a comprehensive, real-time debugger. ROBOTC is a cross-platform solution that allows students to learn the type of c-based programming used in advanced education and professional applications.

ROBOTC Graphical

ROBOTC Graphical is an intuitive icon-based drag and drop programming language that is designed for beginning programmers.  This environment enables teachers to begin to teach students about sequencing, conditional statements, sensor feedback, and loops. This environment is perfect as an introductory programming language, but is not designed for intermediate or advanced programmers.

ROBOTC Natural Language

ROBOTC Natural Language places basic motor commands like moving forward and backward into easy to use functions that empower the student to quickly enable a simple robot behavior. Natural language also enables the programmer to call sensor commands like “untilRotations” which control how far the robot travels, or untilDark, which controls how long the robot will execute a behavior. Natural language provides a scaffolded programming environment between ROBOTC Graphical and full ROBOTC.
