The objective of the Photovoltaic Martian Bug project is to create small autonomous robots. These robots will be powered by solar panels and intelligently react with their environment.
The Capstone Project represents the culmination of the undergraduate Electrical Engineering program at Bradley. Students work with faculty members to develop a product that reflects their level of academic acheivement and professional interest. The Photovoltaic Martian Bug project was presented as an exploration of solar power and an application of robotic systems. We are working with Dr. Huggins and Dr. Malinowski on this project because, well, bugs are cool.
