These programs can be run in PC mode and brick mode. In PC mode, the programs runs in Microsoft Small Basic, while relaying information to the EV3 Intelligent Brick in order to operate the robot.

RBF files are compiled from .SB files, which are files that store Small Basic program code, by EV3 Explorer, which is a Windows program used to view and organize files stored on the EV3 Intelligent Brick. EV3 Explorer can also be used to download RBF, .RSF, and .RGF files to the EV3 Intelligent Brick.
