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 competitions. We participate at two international competitions, the University Rover Challenge and the European Rover Challenge. The rover is designed to perform at both of these competitions. During COVID, the team has participated in virtual competitions such as ERC2020 and is now participating in this year's ERC2021.
BEEP's goal is to be competitive in the international rover scene. It is designed to assistant an astronaut on another planet. It offers a flexible manipulator that can flip swiitches, type on a keyboard, plug a USB key. It can collect and analyse soil as well as autonomously navigate dangerous terrain.
BEEP (BEEP Explores Extraterrestrial Planets) is Space Concorcordia Robotics astronaut assistant robot that competes in international competitions such as the University Rover Challenge and the European Rover Challenge.
It is composed of 3 subsytems. The robotic manipulator, the science payload and an autonomous unit.
Asimov is a robotic arm that is mounted on BEEP. It has a compliant end effector designed to effectively manipulate grasped objects.
The science payload has the mission to analyse extraterrestrial soil and determine whether it contains signs that life is present or has ever existed.
Space Concordia Robotics is a student society at Concordia University that throws its members at challenging space robotics projects.
Space Concordia Robotics teaches and trains excellent young scientists and engineers through hands-on work and an attitude of persistence and collaboration.
Space Concordia Robotics is composed of over 30 passionate students from a wide range of disciplines.
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.
