Background

Background

  • 12th Annual Moonbuggy Competition

  • Huntsville, Alabama – NASA Space Center

  • 7th year IUPUI has competed

  • Timed event:

    • Assembly time

    • Track time

    • Penalties

  • Fastest time wins


Objective

Objective

  • The Great Moonbuggy Race requires students to design a vehicle that addresses a series of engineering problems that are similar to problems faced by the original moonbuggy team.

  • The main objectives of the competition are to design, build, and race a human-powered vehicle able to conquer typical obstacles that a moon rover might encounter.
