RISD Rover - NASA Rover Challenge 

logo-1.jpg

The NASA Rover Challenge (formerly the Great Moonbuggy Race), is based off the original constraints engineers faced designing the lunar rover of Apollo missions 15-17. This human-powered vehicle is designed to traverse a simulated Mars terrain.

I worked primarily on the research and design of seats and fenders,  as well as the fabrication of non-pneumatic wheels. Also helped developed branding. The rover won the Technology Challenge Award.
