NASA Robotic Mining Competition 2015

The past week has been extremely busy as we hit the road to take our new robot, unofficially dubbed “Moonshot”, across the country from our campus in Rolla, Missouri to NASA’s Robotic Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center on the Florida coast. The competition involved remotely controlling our mining robot to make it collect sandy regolith (mineral dust) from a simulated Martian surface and depositing as much of it as we could in a collection bin. We were among teams Read more…

Moonshot Progress

New Robot Drives Anywhere Without Turning

Though we obviously have a few big robots we’ve built for competitions, we at Missouri S&T’s Robotics Competition Team now have a much smaller addition. Our new pint-sized robot, which we’ve given the name Micro Prime (or μPrime), uses an advanced drive mechanism called swerve drive. Basically, this means that it can immediately go in any direction. Micro Prime simply turns all of its wheels to point towards where it needs to move (its wheels Read more…
