BME RescueBot Competition Team


The BME RescueBot Competition Team is formed by a group of students participating in the ARLISS competition with funding of Boeing. As part of an international student team they are developing a robotic device that can autonomously navigate to a given target following a rocket launch. The BME RescuBot Competition Team consists of 5 mechanical engineering students specialized in mechatronics. They work in close co-operation with students from the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) and the Kumoh National Institute of Technology (South-Korea).

The ARLISS competition was established in 1999 and it is held in the Black Rock Playa (NV, USA) in each September. This competition demands for solving challenging engineering problems cooperatively, and it provides useful experience in the design and construction of autonomous robotic systems. The members of the BME RescueBot Competition Team are participating in this competition in 2013 for the first time. The students are under the supervision of the Department of Applied Mechanics, where they are working on a motorized glider concept that can fly in the air and taxiing on the ground towards a target.
