Space Concordia’s Robotics Division was formed as an engineering final project in 2012. In 2017, Robotics restarted as a competition based team. The division is divided into five teams (Mechanical, Electrical, Software, Autonomy, Science) and the project is divided into four systems (Mobile Platform, Robotic Manipulator, Science Payload, Ouster Autonomy Module). Over the years, the Robotics Division has focused on different parts of the rover, from the multipurpose arm, to the mobile platform, to onboard science experiments, finally culminating in the current design.
Our team is dedicated to developing a Mars rover for competitions as it combines our passion for space exploration with our love for robotics. We give our members the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and to put their already existing knowledge to the test.
We are currently developing a rover that would act as a science laboratory and astronaut assistant for Mars exploration missions. The rover is designed as a mobile platform capable of housing three modules: a 5R robotic manipulator, a scientific sampling and analysis payload, and a fully autonomous driving unit. The rover is designed to compete at international and highly competitive competitions.
Space Concordia is a student society at Concordia University that throws its members at challenging space and aerospace projects, to yield awesome results.
We win awards at national and international competitions, we showcase our school, but most importantly: Space Concordia teaches and trains excellent young scientists and engineers through hands-on work and an attitude of persistence and collaboration.
Although we only have a couple of members listed here, Space Concordia is composed of a much larger team of equally passionate people. Our job as executives is to act as ambassadors for the team and to support all Space Concordia members. We're proud and honored to be part of such an amazing team.
We invite members to read through the Space Concordia Constitution. Members are also free to suggest changes to the document.Space Concordia Constitution
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their contributions. We would also like to reassure our sponsors that they are part of something greater than just student competitions.
We are working very hard to go beyond your average student society to prove to our sponsors and to the public that we are capable of accomplishing much more when given the resources to do so.
Your contributions have most certainly not been put to waste and we will work hard to make sure to secure an even brighter future for Space Concordia.
