The IITB Mars Rover project is a student initiative at IIT Bombay to build a prototype Mars rover capable of extra-terrestrial robotics.
We are a young tech team of IIT-Bombay, looking forward to make our mark!
The team consists of budding engineers, ranging from various departments and study programmes offered at IIT-B, working to gain hand on knowledge about development of all terrain rovers and space biosciences, which combinedly, help us towards our deployment of the rover
The current iteration of the rover has a 4 wheeled rocker bogie based suspension system modified to fit our specifications. It rests on four toughened rubber balloon wheels, which provide grip on sandy and slippery surfaces and suspension from shock.
The team has been selected to compete at URC-2019, with a ranking of 20 amongst 84 participating teams worldwide.The Systems Acceptance Review video for the competition is attached.View Gallery, to see the rover in action
The Team is roughly divided into the following four subsystems
