ROVE-E . . . ROVE-E is a mini-rover built like NASA’s Curiosity rover and the upcoming MARS 2020 rover. Its purpose is to engage people with NASA’s Mars Mission.
ASK ROV-E A QUESTION….With an onboard audio speaker and a way to connect to the Internet, ROV-E can answer questions about Mars – out loud! Even though the ROVE-E knows a lot about Mars, the more questions you ask, the more ROV-E learns to answer your questions better
MAKING ROV-E….ROV-E is made mostly with off-the-shelf parts. For example, ROV-E is riding on remote control truck wheels, its two “brains” are easy-to-program Arduino and Raspberry pi computers, and many parts were made using a 3D printer.
ROV-E MAKES FRIENDS….This little rover has made new friends with other robots like BB8. Will you be ROV-E’s new friend??
