European Rover Challenge is Europe’s largest space and robotic event directed towards the representatives of science and business, new-tech sector and the general public.It is made up of two basic elements. It began with the 2014 competition of Martian robots, where young engineers from around the world competed in tasks analogous to those performed by the actual rovers on Mars. Secondly, for ERC visitors a great attraction provides an area of Science and Technology Shows – presentations prepared by dozens of exhibitors, representing both research institutions as well as companies and NGOs.
Rank 20th and 2nd in Asia.
The new team Vyadh2.0 was formed to improve various functionalities of the existing Vyadh1.0.
To design a can size satellite that should be launched in the upper atmosphere. The satellite shall transmit telemetry like air pressure, air temperature,velocity of the scientific vehicle etc to the ground station at a frequency of 1Hz. Also, a egg is placed in the satellite which should not break after landing.
The mission objective is to make a Mars glider which will be launched in the upper atmosphere. During flight, the glider shall send telemetry like air pressure, outside air temperature,velocity,voltage of power bus continuously to the ground station.
At the height of 390-410 m the glider shall be ejected from the container autonomously. During decent,the glider shall follow a helical path of diameter not more than 1000m.
The 2017 mission simulates a solar powered sensor payload which will be launched in the upper atmosphere along with container. When released from the container, it shall glide in a helical pattern with a diameter of no more than 1000 meters and also transmit telemetry data until it lands.
The Hyperloop Pod Competition is an incentive prize competition organized by SpaceX that was held in 2016 where a number of student and non-student teams participated to design a subscale prototype transport vehicle to demonstrate technical feasibility of various aspects of the Hyperloop concept.
SEDS-VIT Hyperloop team was one of the 115 teams which were selected to present their design in the SpaceX Hyperloop design weekend, held at Texas A&M University from Jan 29 and 30, 2016.
