Flowol 4 for VEX IQ

Flowol 4 (Windows PC and Apple Mac) is a visual flowchart based programming environment which now supports the VEX IQ. The drag and drop flowchart design makes programming straightforward for students of all ages.

Flowol 4 connects to the VEX IQ Brain via the USB cable. Programming and debugging with Flowol is first done in a connected mode where the flowchart is run on the computer, the sensors and motors operated in real-time on the device and the flowchart progress monitored on the computer screen. This makes it easy to see sensor values, pause and debug the flowchart logic and refine the program. The flowchart can then be downloaded to the VEX IQ brain and your program can be run autonomously.

Downloaded flowcharts can be be run with our without the VEX IQ Joystick Controller.

Flowol 4 with VEX IQ


In addition to programming the VEX IQ, Flowol 4 also supports the VEX Cortex and a set of 15 progressive Mimics (on screen simulations).

The included mimic activity sheets can be used to start your robotics class in the computer lab, enabling all students to learn at their own pace. This allows for assessment through the differentiated outcomes, but equips all students in the core programming and control system skills necessary to build an effective, working robot with VEX IQ.
