Posted Nov 19, 2013, 8:42 AM by Kevin Sloan University Rover Challenge Unveils 2014 Competition The University Rover Challenge (URC), the world’s premier robotics competition for college students, has officially kicked off its 2014 competition!   URC challenges students to design and build the next generation of Mars rovers which will one day work alongside astronauts on the Red Planet.

  Teams will spend the academic year designing, building and testing their robotic creations.  They will compete at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in the remote, barren desert of southern Utah in late May, 2014.  The challenge features multiple revamped tasks, including an Equipment Servicing Task that incorporates inflatable structures, and a more aggressive incarnation of the popular Terrain Traversing Task.

  The 2013 competition featured the largest international field to date, and was featured on.
