The European Rover Challenge takes place in Poland on-site and remotely! It consists of two parts: the Challenge Zone and the Inspiration Zone. The Challenge Zone is a competition between autonomous rovers allowing students to showcase their skills and creativity. The competition requires students to design rovers to complete a mission that was executed by agencies like NASA or ESA on a make-shift martian surface. The winner of the event is chosen by the team whose software is best prepared to complete the mission and who responds effectively to critical situation.
