Sub Teams


This subteam works to design, assemble, and test the chassis, drive system, digging, and dumping. 


Our robot is designed in SolidWorks, a solid modeling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering application. 


The mechanical team dedicates long hours in the lab manufacturing parts and putting them all together. 


We test our robot in Holden Hall, which houses laboratories for the Mining and Minerals Engineering Department. 


This subteam creates the circuitry and computer programs to make the robot move, process information, and respond to its environment


The electrical team designs circuits to distribute power throughout the robot and interface microcontrollers with sensors and actuators.


The software team programs the robot using ROS, a software framework. The team writes both the low-level code for motor and sensor control and the high-level algorithms for vision and navigation.
