First, we sent our Proposal to ERC and passed the first step of the competition with success. Following that, we sent our Preliminary Design Report and was ranked as the 22nd out of 65 teams in our first year of participating in the competition.
The European Rover Challenge is an international space & robotics event combining competition of martian rovers with scientific and technological shows.
The main part of the project is an international robotics competition, where academic teams from around the world present their mobile robot designs, competing in competitions based on real ESA and NASA missions. The competition takes place on the world’s largest artificial Martian track, that is directly derived from the surface of the Red Planet.
We view this project as both a challenge and an opportunity to show the world what our team is capable of, and look forward to keep competing.
