Manufacturing, Electrical, and Organizational Equipment for Student-Built Mars Rovers

Husky Robotics Team








The Husky Robotics Team is a registered student organization of 140 students competing in the Rover Challenge Series, a series of competitions in Asia, Europe, and the Americas with teams from all over the world. Last year, we competed in the University Rover Challenge at Utah’s Mars Desert Research Station and the Canadian International Rover Challenge. To compete, we bring together a team of diverse and motivated students to design, build, and operate an annual mock Mars Rover. Our Mars rovers needs to do everything from pouring fuel into vehicles to searching for life to autonomously finding objectives in an almost mile-wide area. So, our team is divided into subsystems: Arm, Business, Chassis, Electronics, Manufacturing, Software, and Science to cover the competition’s large number of interdisciplinary tasks. Despite having a budget smaller than many other robotics teams, our team was able to place 2nd at our most recent competition after facing teams from Shanghai to Warsaw. However, our team still requires a large amount of manufacturing, electrical, and storage equipment to complete our rovers while effectively and safely collaborating. The equipment we are requesting is critical to our team’s continued success and will affect the operations of all our team’s members.
