The focus of the blog is changing. I mentioned that I rotate through projects. It is time to focus more on robotics, specifically the NASA Sample Return Robot Centennial Challenge.
In June 2012 NASA ran a Centennial Challenge competition at Worcster Polytechnic Institute. This concept for the competition was a robot on the Moon or Mars retrieving samples. Its tasks were:
- Obtain a pre-cached sample
- Search for other interesting samples
- Return all samples to a landing platform
On this blog I will keep some notes on what has been updated on the project and provide some running commentary on the effort.
