About Indian Rover Challenge 2020
Indian Rover Challenge is the only robotics and space exploration competition of its kind in Asia-Pacific. The competition challenges high school and college students to design and build next generation Mars Rover and compete in Mars simulated conditions. The purpose is to make Rover, which can assist astronauts in revealing the hidden secrets of our planetary neighbour. It aims to ignite and encourage the spirit of innovation amongst young engineers as they set on a quest to build a space exploration rover, using their skills and ideologies. The competition promotes the acceleration of functional prototypes for the advancements of technology in the modern era. It tends to help students to explore new horizons as they deepen their knowledge in space exploration and they put their theories into practice and grasp the technical aspects more effectively.
