AbstractThe Mars Rover Design Team at Missouri University of Science and Technology developed a multifunctional rover for the Mars Society's University Rover Challenge. The main processor of the rover controls various rover subsystems based on commands received from a base station, acquires data from these subsystems, collects primary location and environmental data, and transmits information to the base station. The methodology and technical design of the processor hardware and software will be described in the overall context of the collaborative team development. The paper will also discuss the process, challenges and outcomes of working with limited resources on a student design team.
