The Bruin Robotics Club will be presenting the Mars Rover at the 2022 UPRC. The Rover is comprised of different components that contribute to the mechanical design and overall communication system. The mechanical design has generally focused on converting the 3D printed prototype models to aluminum parts. Outside of the mechanical design of the platform, components on the rover includes LiDAR which helps with obstacle detection, a rocker bogy suspension that allows the rover to traverse over various types of terrain, the power system that provides power to the motors as well as to all of the sensors on the rover, electronic speed controller which will set the speed that the rover should be moving at, autonomous navigation that uses a GPS sensor to calculate current and desired location. The overall communication system design determines how all of the different sensors talk to the micro-controller. At the conference, we will be discussing the above topics in more detail via a poster presentation.
