The objective of the Rover Project is to improve on RObot SCOut (ROSCO), a rover created by Arxterra. It is controlled remotely by using Arxterra’s Interface in conjunction with an Android OS phone running version 3.2 or newer. The brain is the Arduino Uno and each track is powered by a DC motor. The mount for the Android phone is able to scan and tilt using DC motors. The team will incorporate solar power charging to provide continuous charge during operation. An LED illuminator array will be built using an existing PCB to allow night camera operation.
