Project Type MQP Submission date 2012-04-26 Authors Joseph Lawrence Amato, RBE Jon Jacob Anderson, RBE ME Thomas James Carlone, RBE Michael Eli Fagan, LAE URN E-project-042612-131133 Title ORYX 2.0: A Planetary Exploration Mobility Platform Advisors Padir, Taskin, EE Stafford, Kenneth A., ME Availability unrestricted
This project involved the design, manufacturing, integration, and testing of ORYX 2.0, a modular mobility platform. ORYX 2.0 is a rover designed for operation on rough terrain to facilitate space related technology research and Earth exploration missions. Currently there are no low-cost rovers available to academia or industry, making it difficult to conduct research related to surface exploration. ORYX 2.0 fills this gap by serving as a ruggedized highly mobile research platform with many features aimed at simplifying payload integration. Multiple teleoperated field testing trials on a variety of terrains validated the roverís ruggedness and ability to operate soundly. Lastly, a deployable pan-tilt camera was designed, built, and tested, as an example payload.
