As part of my mechanical engineering studies at ETH Zürich our team “Le Petit Prince” took part in the annual Innovation Project. The project challenges over 90 teams to find the best solution for a given task. Our task was to build a robot which can conduct research through collecting probes on an asteroid during its fly-by across our planet. To heighten the challenge, no wheels were allowed.
We could test our design at the contest, and it performed pretty well. During our project, we got to know a lot about product development, which was really informative.
The team “Le Petit Prince” consisted of: Jonas Lauener, Frederic Letsch, Pirmin Sigron, Andri Simeon, Dario Strübin
Project duration: Feb. 2017 – May 2017
