The University Rover Challenge has officially released the rules for the 2018 competition!

Click here for the URC2018 Rules

Registration for the 2018 competition will open in late September, 2017, and will close on November 3, 2017. Similar to previous years, teams will participate in a competitive down-selection process. The major milestones have been renamed for 2018 to better emphasize their place in the design life cycle, including a Preliminary Design Review due on December 3, 2017.

The four competition tasks for 2018 are updated versions of the 2017 tasks: the Science Cache Task, Extreme Retrieval and Delivery Task, Equipment Servicing Task, and Autonomous Traversal Task. There are several small changes throughout the rules, so teams are encouraged to review the rules closely and not rely on knowledge of the 2017 rules!

With the earlier milestones for URC2018, prospective teams are encouraged to start work as soon as possible! Good luck to all of the teams!
