The Raptors from the Technical University of Lodz for the second time took part in the prestigious competition of Mars rovers University Rover Challenge. After three days of demanding competition, Łódź students won 5th place among the top 36 teams in the world, thus renewing the success of last year. The level of this year’s competition was really high, and the competition in which the team from the PŁ was struggling was immediately followed. During the competition, the rover had to do a number of tasks, such as driving along a rock path, entering and exiting a light “cliff”, and testing soil samples. The contest was held in early June (1-3 June) at Mars Desert Research Station, in the heart of the desert state of Utah in the United States. 83 teams from all over the world came to the competition, and the Raptors team was one of five who left Poland. We sincerely congratulate you on your success and wish you further achievements.
