AERO is entering the 2013 Sample Return Robot Challenge. Our team of six graduate and four undergraduate students have already started working on designing and implementing AERO.
For more information about the challenge, please visit: http://wp.wpi.edu/challenge.
Oryx did not officially participate in the NASA Sample Return Robot Challenge but was asked to share the stage with NASA’s Deputy Administrator (Lori Garver) and Chief Technologist (Mason Peck). Oryx was also given an opportunity to search for the pre-cached sample through teleoperated after the competition was over and did very well!
