The use of resources in foreign environments is essential to the success of manned missions to Mars. This project explores the different ways a rover can mine and deliver resources in a simulated Martian environment. This robot is capable of autonomously excavating the simulated ice chunks 30 cm (11 in) below the surface and driving to a collection station to unload the material it has collected. This project was inspired by the NASA Robotic Mining Competition which established a set of rules for how the robot was to be constructed.
