Progress

The competition has ended. Several rover components were damaged en route to Utah, however we still managed to place 16th out of 44 teams at URC2015. Here's how we fared on the individual challenges:
11th in Equipment Servicing
14th in Astronaut Assistance
15th for Presentation
19th in Sample Retrieval
Everyone on the team really stepped up their game to design and build this rover. We are excited to take what we learned from this experience and continue to improve for next year!
