Physical Description

born digtal

abstract
Every year the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) hosts a design challenge to showcase the talents of engineering students from across the nation and allow students to present solutions to design problems. For the 2009 ASME Design Challenge, students were required design and build a remote control vehicle capable of retrieving small rocks, depositing them in a receiving area, and returning to its starting location ready for another run. This competition arose from NASA’s interest in including a small radio controlled vehicle on its next mission to Mars. Parameters of the competition included a design that was within a specified size, lightweight, energy efficient, had the ability to cross barriers, and had accurate rock depositing ability. A robot within these design parameters was designed, built, and tested. The robot will be entered in the 2009 ASME Design Competition in Arlington, Texas.
