Ram Robotics

The purpose of Ram Robotics is to provide an initial point of contact with the professional robotics industry leaders by organizing industry tours, hosting guest speakers, providing small-scale robotics design opportunities to students, and promoting participation in industry-related events.

Ram Robotics fosters a community where robotics enthusiasts and engineers can enhance their skills and obtain insight into the robotics industry. Ram Robotics also functions as a gateway for students to participate in CSU’s NASA Robotic Mining Competition Team.

NASA RMC: Lunabotics 2020

This competition is a full-on engineering exercise where students receive practical experience in the full engineering life-cycle process from concept development to system closeout.

NASA RMC’s: Lunabotics is a multi-semester university-level event that supports NASA’s Moon to Mars trajectory by requiring teams to participate in four events:

  1. Present their robot and their design philosophy at the competition
  2. Submit a Systems Engineering Paper explaining the methodology used in developing their robot
  3. Perform public outreach targeting the under-served, under-represented grade K-12 students in their communities and
  4. Design, build and compete a robot to simulate an offworld mining mission.
