UIU is renowned for its research on Renewable Energy but it's time to set the level of excellence in something different. In recent days students of UIU practicing with robotics and embedded system. Designing mars rover has become a common practice for those universities, who are working in robotics sector and now a days University of Rover Challenge (URC) and European Rover Challenge (ERC) is the most prestigious competition in this field.
The University Rover Challenge (URC) is an annual international competition hosted by the Mars Society for University and College students to complete a given scenario using a rover the team has built. The competition takes place at the Mars Desert Research Station, outside Hanksville, Utah. The competition is running under the basic assumption that the rovers being designed as assistive rovers for a manned mission to mars, and as such, are allowed recharge times between events, and are allowed un-delayed radio communications with the team running the rover.
A special thanks to Mr. GMA Ehasn ur Rahman, Assistant professor of UIU for his advice and relentless support, gave us courage to involve with this project.
