Building Rovers & Robots

Welcome to Husky Robotics!

We are a multi-disciplinary engineering group based at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Founded as a club for robotics enthusiasts to participate in competitions, Husky Robotics has turned its primary focus to participating in the Mars Society's University Rover Challenge (http://urc.marssociety.org) every spring.   

The society presents a series of challenges that test ruggedness, maneuverability, utility, and scientific acumen in astrogeology and astrobiology, requiring a well-rounded team of students with solid technical skills in hard sciences, electronics, software, and mechanical designs. 

Mission:

Our mission is to provide UW students with an environment where they can learn practical, hands-on engineering skills as part of a large interdisciplinary team.

Unfettered by the time limits of the quarter system, our members build on their skills for the entire year, working in a project-oriented team where they can see how their work becomes part of the complete system. This fosters better communication skills, and a fuller understanding of modern engineering.
