Welcome (and welcome back!)
After taking 9th place out of 82 international teams (and 3rd out of the US teams!) at last year’s University Rover Challenge (urc.marssociety.org), Husky Robotics is eager to get started on this year’s rover, and we need students passionate about robotics, space travel, astrological sciences, and hands-on learning to join up!
While our team is primarily composed of undergraduates, Husky Robotics has an open recruitment policy (except for software, due to historically high interest in the group), graduates are also welcome to join.
This is a full-year commitment, with our members working every quarter to make sure we meet the competition deadlines. This year we will be focusing on computer vision, LIDAR, inverse kinematics, and improving our autonomous navigation system.
We run workshops to train our members in Computer Aided Drafting, basic machining, circuit board design, soldering, programming, astrogeology, astrobiology, and experiment design, with many opportunities to learn from experience.
If you’d like to learn more, visit our website at http://www.huskyrobotics.me, or come meet us this week at:
–The Engineering RSO fair on September 26th at the HUB ballroom, from 5-7 PM.
–The Red Square RSO fair, September 27th & 28th from 10 AM to 3 PM
Most importantly, we also have an informational meeting for prospective members!
Saturday, Sept. 30th, in room 238 (second floor) of the Mechanical Engineering building at 10 AM.
We’ll go over the different subsystems that can be joined and what they do, along with further details of how to join and what is expected of our members.
Hope to see you there!
