University of Warsaw Rover Team is a student team devoted to the construction of mars rover analogues for international robotics competitions. Currently we count twenty students from three different faculties of the University of Warsaw.
We take part in a variety of competitions but all of them place similar demands: to construct a remotely controlled robot (mars rover) capable of accomplishing a set of tasks, which are meant to simulate what real rovers may face during future manned missions to Mars. This includes exploration of rough terrain, picking up and delivering objects, manipulating equipment and performing geological surveys of the area. In addition some of the tasks need to be performed autonomously, without any operator’s input...
- study at any Warsaw higher education institution (not only the University of Warsaw) - want to take part in what we are doing - are willing to put a few hours per week into making it happen - see an area in which you could help us

Our team was formed at the University of Warsaw Faculty of Physics.
Our first rover, called the Axolotl, was barely finished in time for the European Rover Challenge 2015.
We were 3rd at the United Kingdom University Rover Challenge!
We finished 6th at the European Rover Challenge!
Still going strong - we are currently preparing for the University Rover Challenge, which takes place in June 2017
