Calibrating the VEX IQ Controller

Step 1: Tether the Controller.

  • Connect one end of the Tether Cable to the powered-off VEX IQ Robot Brain with a charged VEX IQ Robot Battery and the other end to the Controller.
  • Listen for the “click” when the Tether Cable is inserted into the Controller and Brain to confirm that the Tether Cable is attached securely. 

Step 2: Turn on the Brain.

  • Verify that the Controller is connected by noticing the connected icon on the top right of the screen next to the battery life icon.

Step 3: Go to Settings: Calibrate Controller.

  • Press the X button to navigate to the Settings screen.
  • Press the down arrow to the Calibrate Controller option and select it by pressing the Check button.

Step 4: Move the Joysticks.

  • Move both joysticks in a full circle. When finished, press any button on the Brain or the Controller. 

Step 5: Verify and save the Calibration.

  • Press the Check button to save the calibration or press the X button to cancel and return to the Settings menu.

NOTE: When the Check button is pressed to save the calibration, the Brain will make a cheer sound.
