Robochamps: Help Explore the Red Planet

Sign in to queue


RoboChamps is a simulated robotics programming competition in which contestants get the opportunity to program a simulated Mars Rover to recreate Opportunity’s exploration of the Endurance Crater on the Martian surface among other challenges. The competition brings robotics to a broader audience by overcoming the prohibitive cost, lack of access and specialist knowledge associated with physical robots. Based on Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio 2008, RoboChamps enables students, developers and hobbyists to program virtual robots using the .NET languages. RoboChamps will form part of the 2009 Microsoft Imagine Cup, the world’s largest student technology competition.
