One of the great things about RVW, is that you can write programs in RobotC, test them out on a virtual robot in the simulator first before testing on a real robot. A very handy tool to have especially if you're using it in a classroom where you only have a limited number of robots to go around.
The new update includes handy features such as;
- Measuring tables - virtual table tops where you can calculate how far a robot travels based on wheel circumference
- Light Sensor testing tables - As your robot drives across these virtual tables, the sensor will give actual readings depending on the colour
- New Navigation challenges - Billiards and Mini-Golf

Single licence is $49 for a year, with costs coming down if you getting enough licences for a classrom.
