Join the team!

All you need to do is find the subsystem that best suits your expectations!

Technics

The technics pole gathers all subsystems working on the design of the Rover. Together, they ensure that everything will work as a whole and will be ready on time. These subsystems are described below.

Communication

This pole is our connexion with the EPFL campus as well as the outside world ! Share and promote our projects throughout our social media and website and organize events to show our realizations.

Finance and Sponsoring

As a finance responsible, you will ensure a good communication with our sponsors and look for new partnerships. Handle the association funds and expenses to help the rover grow !

6 Subsystems under System Engineering for one Rover !
Avionics

It includes all the electric powered modules, thus ensuring the operation of the motors and the on-board electronic hardware such as cameras, sensors and control boards.

Desired sections:

Microengineering, Electrical engineering, Computer Science

Navigation

Its role is to create an autonomous navigation software that allows the Rover to navigate through challenging terrain by itself based on sensors, cameras and LIDAR feeds.

Desired sections:

Microengineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science

Science

Designing a scientific experiment based on a Science Plan to analyse a soil composition. It also includes the design of the drilling mechanism and the automation of the sample handling.

Desired sections:

Life Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Microengineering

Control Station

The Control Station subsystem deals with all the hardware and the software linked with the Rover-Base communication, be it on the Rover or the control station.

Desired sections:

Communication systems, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Microengineering

Handling Device

Design a multi-degrees-of-freedom robotic arm to handle a control panel made of switches, buttons and a joystick. The arm will also be able to grasp and carry heavy objects.

Desired sections:

Robotics, Microengineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science

Structure

Design a reliable chassis to overcome all kinds of challenging terrain while ensuring that all the different modules from other subsystems can be correctly placed on the Rover.

Desired sections:

Microenginnering, Mechanical Engineering, Material Engineering
