The 18 March 2020 release is primarily to support the preview availability of Virtual Academy IQ.

In addition the following improvements have been made:

  • When driven with WASD test drive, there is an odometer showing distance traveled.
  • Improved performance of the VEX IQ Color sensor in the mimic
