About Us

Yıldız Rover is an interdisciplinary robotics team gathered under the university club SPARK (Space and Art Kitchen) which aims to promote Yıldız Technical University and Turkey on an international basis with their prudential projects.

Yıldız Rover, being one of those projects, consists of students from 15 different departments, making it easier for the team to proceed in different fields as they build their rover.

What is rover?

Rover, a space exploration vehicle, is an autonomous system designed to act in extreme conditions, produced to perform all specific tasks such as collecting information about other planets examining samples taken from the field to investigate the possibility of life.
