Fall 2023 Project Teams
Project team applications have closed
The MATE ROV competition team dives into the sea with underwater robots! This team is designing a robot capable of completing missions while fully submerged. To build this *waterproof* robot, team members design the chassis, propulsion system, and a robotic claw; the software team fills the robot’s onboard computer with sensor and navigation code.
WashU Robotics is flying to Mars with Project Rover! The team is designing an autonomous rover that can drive around campus, while avoiding obstacles and executing tasks. The rover features a custom robotic arm and suspension drivetrain. For autonomous navigation, the robot utilizes GPS and computer vision.
The Pupper AI team uses the Hands-on Robotics’ Stanford Pupper robot. The team builds AI policies to create an intelligent quadruped robot that can interact with its environment. The team has three key tasks: controlling robotic movement, training new reinforcement learning policies in Python, and live image tracking with computer vision.
The VR/AR team develops virtual reality games for the Oculus Quest. The team leverages the Quest’s hand-tracking capability to create a gaming experience where hand gestures control the world. Team members use Unity and Blender to build gameplay mechanics and design graphics.
The Swarm Robotics team explores the field of multi-robot communication. The team is developing a robust communication system to create a multi-robot network. Building off this, the robots will be programmed for real-world applications such as surveillance and search and rescue.
