How do I Handshake Between a VEX Cortex and a Lynxmotion Robot Arm?

Question:

I have a lynxmotion robot, and I want to make it talk to a machine connected to a VEX Cortex using inputs and outputs. How do I do this?

Answer:

This is called handshaking, and you will need at least one computer, Flowarm and RobotC Software, a Lynx arm with SSC32 controller, and a VEX cortex  to do this.

Below is a worksheet that you can download with all of the basics, and there will be a video below shortly as well.

HOME MADE ASRS & A GRAVITY FEEDER

Students in my CIM class built an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) using a bunch of switches, a gravity feeder, and an ER4-U robot. They programmed it to pick and place parts from the feeder into the ASRS, and be able to tell where the parts are, and if the feeder is empty, or if the ASRS is full. Next up: Sorting by colors!
