The GRound Autonomous Student Station (GRASS) is a project motivated by the desire to create a rover in order to get closer to space robotics. Our goals are to design, simulate and build a rover, with abilities such as recognizing the field, avoiding obstacles, moving and analyzing objects.
On the one hand, the electrical systems are tested overall, and the software is currently being developed. The structure has been selfdesigned and now the building process has begun. The mechanical parts of the rover will be ready soon thanks to Girona Design Center’s help on the machining of the mechanisms.
On the other hand we are currently developing the software capable of recognize the field and move forward with the LiDar system.
We have planned to end the first goal of our project, having a fully autonomous rover, by the end of 2017.
