Center.

Team members will be required to


address a series of engineering
problems that are similar to problems
faced by the old Moon-buggy team.

Each Moon-buggy will be a human


powered, all-terrain vehicle and will
be driven by two students, one female
and one male, over a half-mile
simulated

lunar

terrain

course

including "craters", rocks, "lava"


ridges, inclines and "lunar" soil.

DescriptionThe NASA ROVER CHALLENGE 2014 is the 1st instalment in the series of annual
Moonbuggy competition. The event will be held in the month of April, 2014 at the
Marshall Space Centre, Huntsville, Alabama, U.S.A. The event is the largest of its
kind international competition at high school and college (undergraduate) level.
The event witnesses around 40 teams from around the globe competing against
each other for the title of the best.
The ChallengeA team of six members are given the task to design and fabricate a two seater,
human powered vehicle that will be used to traverse an obstacle course of half a
mile, simulated in the image of the lunar surface. The vehicle must be collapsible
to fit inside a cube of size five feet, and in this state must be carried by the drivers
up to a distance of twenty feet. The vehicle is supposed to be driven by a male and
a female candidate.
The PrizesApart from the awards for the top three winning teams there are a host of other
awards that include

The vehicle must be collapsible to fit


inside a cube of size four feet, and in
this state must be carried by the
drivers up to a distance of twenty feet.

Feather-weight Award- For the lightest vehicle.


Most Improved- For the best improvements made in the design.
Rookie Award- For the best performing new entry.
Best Report- For the team with the best design Report.
System Safety- For the vehicle with the best safety standards.
Design Award- For the best approach towards designing a vehicle for
traversing on lunar surface.

Each Moonbuggy is a "proof-of-concept" human powered vehicle to be driven over

a half-mile course
with twisting curves, treacherous
pits and other obstacles

Our Moonbuggy design consists of its suspension system, chassis, drive trains,
steering mechanism, brake system, recumbent seat assembly, tires and the
wheel assembly.
Each part will be designed and assembled to allow the vehicle to withstand the
engineering challenges posed by the rough lunar terrain and to meet the
requirements of high strength, rigidity and good dynamic performance.
The vehicle will boast an ultra-lightweight foldable design in order to minimize
the payload on the space missions it may be carried on. The moonbuggy will
be a human-powered all-terrain vehicle with the capability to become a
hybrid at a later stage.
Our team consists of six student members under the guidance of one faculty
advisor .The team is subdivided into three groups: Suspension & Steering,
Chassis & Bodywork and Marketing & Finance.
The team members are responsible for the design, fabrication and testing of
the vehicle
Two members will drive the vehicle over the rough course designed to simulate
the lunar terrain
All members will ensure that the vehicle meets all the required safety criterion
The 6-membered team along with the faculty advisor will travel to the NASA
US Space and Rocket Center to take part in the race to be held on the 10th
April, 2014.
