Abstract

This MQP encompasses the design of a robotic test bed for exploring capabilities to be incorporated in future Mars rovers. More specifically, this project focuses on developing techniques that may allow an autonomous robot the ability to construct a science lab on Mars. The project team has successfully designed and built an autonomous robot consisting of a robotic arm, camera and other sensors mounted to a mobile chassis to recognize and manipulate representational building materials on a small scale.
