Manufacturing, Electrical, and Organizational Equipment for Student-Built Mars Rovers
The Husky Robotics Team is a registered student organization of 113 students competing in the Rover Challenge Series, a series of competitions in Asia, Europe, and the Americas with teams from all over the world. We compete in the University Rover Challenge in the summer and the Canadian International Rover Challenge in the summer and winter. To compete, we bring together a team of diverse and motivated students to annually design, build, and operate a mock Mars Rover.
Our Mars rovers perform tasks that range from pouring fuel into vehicles, searching for life, and autonomously finding objectives in an almost mile-wide area. Our team is divided into subsystems: Arm, Business, Mobility, Electronics, Manufacturing, Software, and Instrumentation 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 1st in the US and 3rd overall at the Virtual University Rover Challenge in June 2021.
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.
