General Info

Join us for the VEX IQ Live Remote Tournament brought to you by the CanSTEAM Foundation! This event will be open to 24 teams from all over the world to participate.

**Please read the entire event posting prior to registering for this Live Remote Tournament.**

Participating in a Live Remote Tournament requires teams to have their own VEX IQ field and Pitching In Game Element.  If an organization (school) has multiple registered VEX IQ teams for this event, you will need at 2 fields and 2 (4 preferred) computers with webcam (720p or above) to participate the event from the same location.

  • VEX IQ Teams should practice using the Live Remote Tournament practice system prior to the event to ensure they have the necessary equipment and resources.  Please see these Live Remote Tournament Practice Instructions for more details.
  • VEX IQ Teams need to carefully read the VEX IQ Game Manual on Live Remote Tournaments to ensure the field is correctly set up and teams understand the rule/scoring differences compared to an in-person tournament.
  • Teams will need to compete their technical set up and test all of their equipment prior to the event. 

In addition to a full field and game elements, each registered team will need:

  • a dedicated computer with a Google Chrome Broswer
  • an external USB camera (720p or higher resolution)
  • reliable/high speed internet
  • their VEX IQ robot with updated firmware (latest firmware at the competition date, current version is 2.2.0)

***Please carefully review these requirements prior to registering.***
