University of Warsaw Rover Team


University of Warsaw Rover Team is a student team devoted to the construction of mars rover analogues for international robotics competitions. Currently we count about fifteen students from five different faculties of the University of Warsaw.

We take part in a variety of competitions but all of them place similar demands: to construct a remotely controlled robot (Mars Rover analogue) capable of accomplishing a set of tasks, which are meant to simulate what real rovers may face during future manned missions to Mars. This includes exploration of rough terrain, picking up and delivering objects, manipulating equipment and performing scientific surveys of the area. In addition some of the tasks need to be performed autonomously, without any operator’s input.

We are always looking to expand our team. If you:

- are a part of the University of Warsaw (only students can be team members but help from the faculty is always welcome)
- want to take part in what we are doing
- are willing to put at least a few hours per week into making it happen
- see an area in which you could help us
