We’re the team of students behind the WALRUS Rover. We are a group of five undergraduate students completing our Major Qualifying Project (MQP) at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Worcester, MA. All together, we represent four core majors at WPI (Robotics, Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Science) and are thrilled to work with our advisers to create such a powerful and innovative rover.
The idea for the WALRUS Rover (Water And Land Remote Un-manned Search Rover) came about at the end of our Sophomore year. Ambitious at first, we met with several professors to try to narrow down the scope of our project. We’re really excited about the possibilities of this rover.
