Engineering Design Using a Small Autonomous Robot for Student Education

As part of educational programs for students to acquire practical skills and knowledge, Aichi University Technology (AUT) participated in a demonstration test competition aiming for future Mars exploration. A Rocket Launch for International Student Satellites (ARLISS), is a competitive event for the evaluation of autonomous robots – conducting tests relating to their autonomous descent back to the ground after being launched 400m above the ground using a small rocket. For the final designed robot, HyperWorks was used for structural analysis to understand whether or not the robot meets requirements, and MotionSolve was extremely useful for practical industrial education that is linked to CAD design.
